In honor of Memorial Day in the USA, we’re dedicating this one to our armed forces who give it all to keep us safe!
Carrie Underwood debuted a new song for our active forces, ‘Keep Us Safe,’ the ‘ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops.’
The songstress captivated the audience as she sang, “God keep us safe tonight / Keep our eyes toward the skies / Send down an army of angels / To make us brave / And keep us strong and unafraid / God keep us safe,” backed by a full orchestra, as pictures of the troops in action flashed across a large screen behind her.
Underwood wrote the song as a way to honor the soldiers for their efforts in keeping people safe, at home and abroad. “When we were approached to be a part of the show, I was so excited to do something to honor our troops and because ACM Lifting Lives does such great work. I wanted to take the time to really think about what song I wanted to perform,” she says. “I had a writing session scheduled with my co-writers and friends Hillary Lindsey, Luke Laird, and Shane McAnally, and I guess the show was weighing on my mind. I think we all left the session knowing the song was special because it basically wrote itself that day!”
