ICYMI: Watch Carrie Underwood’s Tribute to Vince Gill with “Go Rest High”

The CMT Giant’s special was incredible!

During the CMT Giants special on Friday Night, Vince Gill was the center of attention. 10 of his biggest songs were brought to life by Chris Stapleton, Cody Johnson, Ricky Skaggs and more. But the one that caught our attention the most was the incredibly powerful voice of Carrie Underwood delivering the heart wrenching Go Rest High On That Mountain. Be sure to watch for Vince Gill’s face at the end.

If you don’t remember the story, Vince Gill began writing the lyrics to Go Rest High On That Mountain after the death of fellow singer Keith Whitley. Then tragically, Gill’s own brother passed away unexpectedly. The loss caused him to finish what would become one of the most poignant expressions of grief ever put into song.
