Carrie Underwood Performs “Go Rest High On That Mountain” in Memory of Vince Gill

Carrie Underwood performs a moving rendition of “Go Rest High On That Mountain” in memory of Vince Gill.

Vince made the song ‘Go Rest High On That Mountain’ famous in the 1990s. He began penning the song in 1989, following the de ath of fellow country artist Keith Whitley.

Despite being motivated to lay down the lyrics, Vince would need years to complete the special song. The song swiftly rose to the top of the music charts after its release.
‘Go Rest High On That Mountain’ went on to win 2 Grammy awards and the Country Music Association’s Song of the Year award in 1996. Over the years, the lyrics of the song have provided peace and comfort to many hearts around the world.

Today, Carrie Underwood is putting her own spin on this Vince Gill classic for the CMT Giants special.

Carrie became a household name after winning the fourth season of American Idol back in 2005. She won over the hearts of America with covers of songs such as Bonnie Raitt’s ‘I Can’t Make You Love Me’ and ‘Bless The Broken Road’ from Rascal Flatts.

After her win, she quickly climbed the country charts and made a solid name for herself in the country music world. It’s been 16 years since that momentous audition and Carrie is still using her gift to touch our hearts.

Just listen as she belts out these iconic words to honor her friend, and legend, Vince Gill.
