Carrie Underwood helped slow down the high-energy pace of the 2018 American Music Awards on Tuesday night (October 9) with her emotional "Spinning Bottles," a new track off her chart-topping new album, Cry Pretty.
Dressed in an oversized dress, which hid her baby bump, Underwood stood in the center of a spinning platform surrounding by candles as she belted the new ballad. With a pianist in the background, the former American Idol champ told the story of addiction. "Round and around and around they go/ Will it end? Nobody knows/ She's all cried out on the kitchen floor/ Spinnin' rooms, spinnin' wheels, spinnin' out of control/ Spinnin' bottles, spinnin' bottles," she belted during the hook.
Earlier in the evening, Underwood scored the award for Favorite Female Artist - Country, taking to the podium to tribute her fans. "Thank you God, first and foremost. I have an incredible team of people who make my universe go round, so thank you so much. But tonight is all about the fans. Thank you so much," she said during her speech. "You have shown so much love and support for me for the past few months of my life - well, my whole career, honestly, but especially these past few months - I feel it. Thank you so much; thank you for this," Underwood said as she accepted the award.
