Carrie Underwood Performs Cover Version Of Ozzy Osbourne Classic

Everyone knows that Underwood was a winner on American Idol and that gave her career a huge boost. Also, longtime fans know that her faith is a very important part of her life. She recorded her last album, My Savior, as a gospel album. Yet you also know that Carrie does love her rock and roll. After all, she recently spent time over in the United Kingdom with Guns N’ Roses. Yep, Axl Rose, the Gunners’ famed frontman, happened to sing along with Underwood at a festival. Now, she returned the favor and performed Sweet Child O’ Mine and Paradise City with the group.

Heck, Carrie even covered a song from the “Blizzard of Oz” and Prince of Darkness himself, Ozzy Osbourne. For an Apple Music Sessions recording, Underwood performed the Ozzy classic Mama, I’m Coming Home. In a statement, Underwood said, “I have always been an Ozzy Osbourne fan, and ‘Mama, I’m Coming Home’ is one of my all-time favorite songs. I’ve always thought it felt a lot like a country song, and I’ve wanted to cover it for a long time. This was a really fun opportunity for me to be able to finally make that happen. I hope we’ve done Ozzy proud and I hope he likes it.” Never let it be said that Carrie Underwood doesn’t love her rock music.
