Carrie Underwood had a mother-daughter moment during her performance of "The Champion" at the BOK Center, Tulsa, Oklahoma. Her mom took the rap part by Ludacris.


When Carrie Underwood set out for her "Cry Pretty Tour" three months after giving birth to her son, Jacob, she promised to get a "Champion" in every city to perform the rap part, initially taken by Ludacris, in her song, "The Champion."

The country music star has kept that promise, and during her performance at the BOK Center, Tulsa, Oklahoma, her mom, Carole, as "The Champion," joined her on stage to take the rap.

Underwood shared a photo on Instagram of the two of them facing each other, mic in hand, as they performed from their heart. In the accompanying caption, the blonde beauty wrote,

"Got to share the stage with this amazing champion tonight. Of course, I'm talking about my mom! She crushed it."



Underwood's fans joined her in the comment section with praise for the mother-daughter performance. One person wrote,

"That's amazing. Such a great memory to have."

While another commented, "That's so incredibly special," and a third wrote, "WOAH! So fun and cool."


Interestingly, Tulsa is a few miles away from the Grammy winner's childhood town of Checotah, and in an earlier post with a video of the performance with Carole, she wrote,

"Nailed it! I kept trying to keep her on track [laughing-crying emoji]. At the end, she said, 'Did I do okay?' Who knew mom could rap. #MyMomsCoolerThanYourMom.”



Underwood, who is a mom-of-two, adores her mom and understands the importance of family. Since her tour began, her husband, Mike Fisher, son, Isaiah, 4, and baby Jacob have travelled with her. In September, she shared how grateful she is to have them with her writing,

"One of my favorite things about #CryPrettyTour is having my family out on the road with me. I just hope I am making my boys proud of their mama."

The tour is named after the singer's latest album, "Cry Pretty." The mom-of-two rose to prominence after winning "America Idol" in 2005.


Although Underwood never thought she would become a huge hit, she did and has stayed relevant since. She has six successful studio albums, 8 Grammy wins and does not plan to slow down soon.
