Jason Aldean Was ‘Scared’ About Carrie Underwood’s Descent From the Ceiling at the ACMs
Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood performed their hit, “If I Didn’t Love You,” at the ACMs on Monday night. But they didn’t take the stage the same way.
Aldean admitted after the performance that he was scared about Underwood’s circus-style descent on stage. “When we came to rehearsals, I knew she was coming from the ceiling, but I was like, ‘Where’s she sitting?’ exclaimed Aldean. “And they showed me this little bitty seat. I went to her and said, ‘Man, I’m glad you’re doing this and not me, because I would have tapped out.”
Carrie, on the other hand, jumped at the opportunity to dangle from the ceiling. She told the press, backstage, “I was excited, it’s something I’d never done before. I’m always up for trying new things, adding a little bit of danger to the performance.”
Carrie has had a lot of practice with flashy, daring performances; as she has been playing her Las Vegas residency.
Underwood and Aldean took home an award for Single of the Year for “If I Didn’t Love You.”
