Carrie Underwood to Do ’60s Medley for Emmy Awards Show

It’s part of a tribute to television milestones from 50 years ago.

Carrie Underwood has landed a coveted slot singing on the annual Primetime Emmy Awards show airing live Sunday (Sept. 22) on CBS.

She’ll be part of a salute to the 50th anniversary of television milestones from 1963, including coverage of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Actor Don Cheadle will present that salute, which will also feature a nod to the 50th anniversary of The Beatles performing on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Afterward, Carrie will sing a medley of songs from the era, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

That’ll be good live TV practice for Carrie, who is set to star in a live performance of The Sound of Music Dec. 5.
