Carrie Underwood to Perform at Emmys Sunday
From MusicRow.com:The 65th Emmy Awards will honor the 50th anniversary of 1963 television milestones by featuring a special tribute by six-time Emmy nominee Don Cheadle and a performance by Underwood. 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 merely 80 days later on Feb. 9, 1964. Both of these historic events are often mentioned together as two of the most significant television moments in history, and the segment on the Emmy telecast will explore the tie between them.
Following Cheadle’s presentation, Underwood will honor the music of the era with a special performance. This is a very cool gig, and we are happy that country music will be front and center at the Emmy’s, which will be at 7 p.m. CST on CBS.
