Carrie Underwood Set to Present at 2017 Golden Globes
Carrie Underwood makes her return to the Golden Globes stage on Sunday night (Jan.8) as a presenter for the 2017 ceremony.
The “Dirty Laundry” singer will present not one, but two of the night’s accolades. Nash Country Daily reports that the country hitmaker will present the awards for Best Original Score and Best Original Song alongside rock star Sting.
Underwood herself was nominated for a Golden Globe in the category of Best Original Song in 2010 for a track she co-wrote, “A Place For Us,” which was featured in the final installment of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Just some of the songs nominated in 2017 in the Best Original Song category include Justin Timberlake‘s “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” which appears in the film Trolls, “Faith” from the movie Sing, “City of Stars” in La La Land and more.

Arrival, La La Land and Lion, the latter of which stars Keith Urban‘s wife Nicole Kidman, are among the films that appear in the category for Best Original Score. The country star joins previously announced presenters Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Steve Carell, Reese Witherspoon and several other A-list stars.
Underwood closed out 2016 on a high note, serving as a host at the 50th annual CMA Awards for the ninth year in a row alongside fellow host Brad Paisley. She also took home the award for Female Vocalist of the Year, following a successful year of touring in support of her sixth consecutive No. 1 album on Billbaord’s Top Country Albums chart, Storyteller, which garnered three chart-topping hits.
