Country superstar Carrie Underwood performed on “The Tonight Show” this Thursday night. She sang “O Holy Night,” the classic Christmas song about the birth of Jesus.

The song is one of the covers on Underwood’s first holiday album, My Gift, which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart this October.

A Different Year than Anticipated

Like everyone else, Underwood has had to adjust her plans for 2020. She recently told Apple Music’s “At Home With” series that she had to step back a bit and spend more time with her family this year.

“I mean, when you do look at this year, the way it started, [I said], ‘This is what I’m going to do, I’m going to make a Christmas album, I’m going to do these [things,] X, Y, and Z,’ and then everything gets changed,” Underwood said. “Early on, I feel like I did a pretty good job of saying, ‘OK, how do we circumvent our situation and what we do?’ And I feel like it brought me a bigger sense of peace in knowing that I was not in control and still, like I said, just continuing to move forward.”

Still, Underwood managed to do a Christmas special, “My Gift: A Christmas Special from Carrie Underwood,” which premiered on HBO Max this Thursday. 

And in the meantime, until things return to normal, she says she’s been counting her blessings.

“I’m very lucky,” she added. “I do have two incredible boys and my husband, and we live on a farm, and I kind of got to maybe get back to some of my roots boy not being on stage for a minute. I got to be outside so much and I got to work in the garden and just be a mom and be a wife and be at home. It’s the most I’ve been still in over 15 years.”
