Carrie Underwood and Faith Hill to Appear With Tony Bennett on ‘Great Performances’ TV Special
Carrie Underwood and Faith Hill will get a chance to show off some of their best work from 2011 later this month. The country ladies will appear alongside Tony Bennett in an upcoming PBS special which brings the jazz legend's 'Duets II' album sessions to life on the television screen.
Both Underwood and Hill were featured on the second edition of Bennett's duets compilation, which hit shelves in September. As you may remember, Underwood's 'It Had to Be You' rendition with the 85-year-old was recorded for an episode of 'Blue Bloods,' and will be seen by audiences again when the studio session is aired as a part of 'Great Performances,' alongside Hill's 'The Way You Look Tonight.'
The first of Bennett's 'Duets' records, which honored his 80th birthday, featured Hill's husband Tim McGraw as well as the Dixie Chicks. In the upcoming PBS airing, the 'Duets II' artists will be showcased -- including the late Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga, Norah Jones, John Mayer, Aretha Franklin, Willie Nelson and many more.
'Great Performances' airs Jan. 27 on PBS.
