She wore her blonde hair in loose waves down over her shoulders, and kept her make-up natural with a bronzed look.

"She looked beautiful and all of the artists did a great job!" one fan shared as another praised Carrie's performance, writing: "Loved Carrie singing Barbara’s songs. She's amazing and can sing anything. So cool to see a future legend honoring a legend!"

Barbara is one of the original country stars, and her now-famous song I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool was sung by Carrie during the evening's celebrations.

The performances are available to watch on the Opry's Facebook page, and it comes a week after Carrie also appeared during the Opry's special event, Opry Loves the 90s.

Carrie sang Blame It On Your Heart, the 1993 hit for Patty Loveless, and she teased details of the night by sharing an incredible throwback video of her singing the track in 1993.

With permed hair and wearing a black and white patchwork shirt with zig zag detailing, the young Carrie paired the look with tapered black pants, a classic for the time.
