Maybe your favorite band Carrie Underwood be the Armas e Rosas. And she managed to fulfill her dream of taking the stage at a band show, in addition to bringing the vocalist Axl Rose to participate in your own presentation.
The initial collaboration took place in May last year, during a concert Carrie at the American country festival Stagecoach. The artist managed to bring Axlgenerally reluctant to participate, to sing “Sweet Child O’Mine” and “Paradise City” with her. The kindness was reciprocated with Underwood’s presence on stage at two performances of the Guns during a show in England, two months later. Rose even repeated the dose during the artist’s performance in Los Angeles, last March.
In an interview with Rolling Stone USA (via Igor Miranda website), Carrie Underwood explained how he managed to convince Axl Rose to hold its first participation, still in 2022.
“I had asked before if he would come sing, or if I could go to him somewhere. We had a few ‘almosts’ and ‘maybes’, but for various reasons it wasn’t the right time. For the Stagecoach, I sent an email and said ‘we are so close to you’, I explained why and what he meant to me. The way I learned to sing was by choosing really difficult vocalists to try to imitate, and their voice always mesmerized me. So I told him all this… and he came!”
