Country Throwback: Carrie Underwood Performs ‘Good Girl’ Duet with Young Girl in 2013

by Suzanne Halliburton

Carrie Underwood didn’t mind sharing the stage in a south Texas arena seven years ago. The country superstar noticed a very young fan in the crowd holding a sign that said “can I sing with you?”

So Underwood said sure thing, come on up. What followed was a wow moment.

Underwood asked the girl, whose name was Genesis Nava, which one of Underwood’s many songs that she’d like to sing. Nava nominated “Good Girl.”

Underwood started the first verse, then handed the mic to Nava. The little girl had a powerful voice. So Underwood let her keep singing. Underwood opted to stand and clap. The crowd in Hidalgo, Texas, applauded for one of their own.

Check out the Carrie Underwood performance. Then we’ll fill you in with some more details.

Carrie Underwood Picked Up Her 12th No. 1 With “Good Girl”

The song was a popular choice. Underwood’s fans loved it. “Good Girl” was the first single released from her 2012 album, Blown Away. That album made its debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Underwood was a co-writer of it, along with Chris DeStefano and Ashley Gorley.

The song is vintage Carrie Underwood. In it, she warns another good girl about her ex-boyfriend. Underwood sings: “His lips are dripping honey, but he’ll sting you like a bee. So lock up all your loving. Go and throw away the key.”

Viewers of CMT voted the “Good Girl” video as tops of 2012. The song eventually reached No. 1 on the country charts. It was Underwood’s 12th. The song also sported cross over appeal. “Good Girl” was her Underwood’s second most popular single on the adult contemporary chart only after “Before He Cheats.”

You might’ve noticed that Carrie Underwood was a bit gimpy during her duet with Genesis Nava. Underwood was a few days removed from her fall on stage during a concert in Corpus Christi, Texas. Underwood caught her stiletto on the hem of her long, flowy shirt. She fell in a heap. Underwood had to wear a protective boot on her left leg as she continued performing.

Meanwhile, Genesis Nava enjoyed a bit of fame, too. She tried out for season eight of “America’s Got Talent” when the auditions came to San Antonio. Her father accompanied her on guitar. The judges were unanimous in their decision to put her through to the Las Vegas rounds.

But sadly, Nava sang “Good Girl” in Vegas and was eliminated from the show. But she’ll always have that night in Hidalgo.
