“I mean, the GRAMMYs and performing at the GRAMMYs, that is such an iconic thing," she told The Recording Academy. "There are so many incredibly talented musical acts in so many different genres of music that only a select few actually get to perform on the stage even if they’re nominated for multiple ones per night."

Underwood added, “It’s just really special. It’s iconic. There’s always incredible moments. They do such an incredible job of making everybody’s performances look incredible. So I’m always excited to get to play on the GRAMMYs stage.”
