Carrie Underwood Brings ‘The Coolness’ Of Joan Jett To CMA Fest

Carrie Underwood welcomed special guest Joan Jett to her set during CMA Music Festival in Nashville on Friday (June 7th) night. The two teamed up on the rocker’s hits like “Bad Reputation, “Crimson and Clover,” “Fresh Start” and “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll.”

Carrie has never kept her love of rock music a secret, and she was almost giddy with excitement before bringing Joan to the stage on Friday. She told us: “I get to sing with Joan Jett, guys! Whoo! (laughs) Super excited! I feel like we’ve kind of had connections and like bumped into each other in various places and the stars just aligned and I was kind of like, ‘What if Joan Jett came to CMA Fest?’ ‘Well, let’s ask her,’ so she’s here. The coolness has arrived and I’m hoping some of it rubs off on me.”

Carrie continues on her Cry Pretty 360 Tour tonight (Monday, June 10th) in Ottawa, ON with Maddie & Tae and Runaway June.
