Ahead of the ‘90s Opry special, Underwood partook in the “​​How it started ➡️ How it’s going” trend to promote her performance of the Loveless classic. 

The Oklahoma native shared a clip of herself singing the tune when she was a child and paired it up with a clip from her Opry performance. 

The star-studded special also featured performances by Kelsea Ballerini, Cody Johnson, Midland, Michael Ray, Jimmie Allen, Keith Urban, Lainey Wilson and Chris Young. 

The program showcased each of the artists covering popular ‘90s country hits from artists like Garth Brooks, Patty Loveless, The Chicks, Toby Keith, Vince Gill and more.

The one-hour concert also included an exclusive collaboration of the 1996 No. 1 hit “Strawberry Wine” between Deana Carter and Opry NextStage artist BRELAND. 

Hosted by Natalie Stovall, Opry Live: Opry Loves the ’90s premiered via Circle Network on Saturday, July 23 at 9/8c and re-aired at 12/11c. 

In May, the Grand Ole Opry launched a celebration of ‘90s country music with the limited-time “Opry Loves the ‘90s” experience.
