According to Music Row country superstar Carrie Underwood will be performing on the 65th Annual Emmy Awards. The show is set to air Sunday, September 22nd, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. The songstress will be participating in a special tribute portion of the show.
The Emmy Awards will take time out to honor the 50th anniversary of 1963 television milestones by featuring a special tribute by six-time Emmy nominee Don Cheadle and a performance by Carrie. Don Cheadle will present a tribute to television’s role in the assassination coverage of President John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963 and then connect that event to the performance of the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show only 80 days later on Feb. 9, 1964. Both of these momentous events are often mentioned together as two of the most noteworthy television moments in history. This very special presentation will look at the tie between the two events. Carrie’s part comes in when they honor the music of this special era!
