Carrie Underwood put on a mesmerizing performance of her hit, Before He Cheats, while performing in the 2020 Academy of Country Music Awards's opening number.

As she crooned the ever-popular 2005 breakup track, the 37-year-old performer commanded attention in a thigh-skimming gold dress, matching microphone and sky-high heels. 

After strutting across the stage of Nashville's Grand Ole Opry, Underwood soulfully performed to an empty room, as live audiences were scrapped due to social distancing regulations.
