If you were to scroll through Carrie Underwood’s catalog of hits, you’d probably find that she’s got plenty of revenge songs. Take for example, “Before He Cheats,” “Last Name” and “Church Bells.”
But, that doesn’t mean that the country music star doesn’t ever sing songs about being in love.

On Oct. 20, during the “CMT Artists of the Year” special, Carrie floored #AOTY audience members and viewers with her romantic love song, “Like I’ll Never Love You Again,” which you can watch here.
The passionate cut appears on the superstar’s fifth studio album, “Storyteller,” and was penned by Nashville songwriters Liz Rose, Lori McKenna and Hillary Lindsey. The three writers, who joined Carrie onstage for the performance, are known as the Love Junkies.
Carrie’s performance was a scorcher! She stepped out onto the radiant, red-lit stage adorned with gorgeous chandeliers and flaunted her long legs in a hot mini-dress. She crooned the sultry lyrics of the sexy slow ballad so beautifully. Following Carrie’s performance, the camera flashed to her applauding hubby Mike Fisher whose smile beamed extra bright.
Aside from the intoxicating performance, Carrie was honored for Artist of the Year.
During her acceptance speech she got candid about her love for her hubs saying, “Thank you, Mike, for just being so supportive throughout this tour! It’s been so much fun being on the road. It’s definitely hard being away from you. But, you’re the best.”
Stars Florida Georgia Line, Chris Stapleton, Thomas Rhett and Luke Bryan also earned trophies for CMT Artists of the Year at the event. Aside from that award, Breakthrough Artist of the Year went to Kelsea Ballerini, and the major Artist of a Lifetime award went to Shania Twain.
Currently, Carrie is on the road for her energetic Storyteller Tour. The trek continues on Oct. 22 in Charlottesville, Virginia. From there, she’ll head to Charlotte, North Carolina on Oct. 23.
