Carrie Underwood made an appearance at the Grand Ole Opry this weekend in Nashville to pay a moving tribute to late country star Toby Keith.

While performing a variety of other songs from her own discography, she also broke out into a rendition of his hit "Should've Been a Cowboy," and received rave reviews from the crowd.

The 41-year-old musician gushed about her time at the Opry on social media, sharing photos from stage as well as a look at her dazzling blue dress.

Carrie wore a magnificent blue wrap dress with a voluminous ruffled skirt, covered in floral print and sequined detailing, a plunging neckline, and a dramatic train courtesy of the skirt falling behind her.

The skirt emphasized her insanely toned legs as well, while light accents of jewelry completed the look. Her hair was styled in loose waves and she opted for a fresh faced makeup look.
