Country music superstar Carrie Underwood joined Gospel music veteran Yolanda Adams to sing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” on the Elvis All-Star Tribute on Sunday night (Feb. 17). Both ladies delivered a stirring rendition of the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic that Elvis Presley released as a single in 1968. It was the title track of his album of gospel recordings in 1971.
NBC’s “Elvis All-Star Tribute” – which aired Sunday, Feb. 17 – featured a ton of Nashville artists. Yolanda Adams and Carrie Underwood were joined by Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, Pistol Annies and Darius Rucker. There was also an appearance from Nashville Songwriters Hall of Famer Mac Davis, who penned several Presley classics, including “A Little Less Conversation” and “In the Ghetto.”
They’re part of an all-genre lineup that includes Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, John Legend, Jennifer Lopez, Post Malone, John Fogerty, Josh Groban, Yolanda Adams, Alessia Cara and Adam Lambert. It’s a fitting mix, as the ’68 special showcased several sides of Presley.
