Carrie Underwood is one of country music’s biggest superstars, but she has a soft spot in her heart for rock. If you want proof, look no further than her social media channels where she shared photos meeting metal band I Prevail.

Underwood performed at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit on February 26. I Prevail happened to have formed in the nearby suburb of Southfield, Mich., which lent itself to the perfect opportunity for the singer and the band to meet.

“I was so excited to have the guys from @iprevailband at the show last night in Michigan!!!” wrote Underwood on social media. ” I tried to play it cool and not fangirl too much! Super great guys!!! I’m hoping I get to catch one of their shows this year!!!”


In the comments of Underwood’s Instagram post, I Prevail unclean vocalist Eric Vanlerberghe wrote, “There was an equal amount of fangirling haha. Thanks again for having us out! Show was incredible.” Meanwhile, I Prevail clean vocalist Brian Burkheiser wrote, “Thank you for an incredible night!!!”

See how this unexpected but pretty cool meet-up came to be by revisiting Underwood sharing her I Prevail fandom below.
