County superstar Carrie Underwood is no stranger to the Stagecoach country music festival Mane Stage, and she had a warm homecoming on Saturday night.

Underwood came out packing a punch with fireworks firing off as she sang “Last Name” off her 2007 sophomore album "Carnival Ride." The crowd went wild for the singer, who wore a jean jacket with rhinestones, jean shorts and a shiny red top. She immediately showed off her powerhouse vocals and continued to dazzle the crowd with fireworks, letting them know the fun was only beginning.

Once she moved into “Undo It,” fans everywhere chimed in on the chorus. She even instructed the thousands gathered at the Mane Stage to repeat lines after her, with a megaphone nonetheless. Hearing her fans sing put an infectious smile on her face.

It was clear that Underwood was glad to be back at Stagecoach, which she was initially going to headline back in 2020, but the festival was canceled due to COVID-19. The "American Idol" winner previously headlined Stagecoach in 2016.

“It took us two years to get right here, and if there’s one thing I learned during that time it’s that we know not what tomorrow holds,” Underwood said. She told her fans “don’t you waste” today.

She later paid tribute to all those who people lost in the crowd by singing “See You Again.” A sea of cell phone flashlights lit up the Empire Polo Club fields.

The Saturday night performance quickly turned into the self-professed “greatest moment of her life” when Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose came out to sing “Sweet Child O’ Mine” with the headliner. The two legends danced all over the stage and got the crowd even more excited. They later sang another one of the rock band’s hits, “Paradise City.”

Guns N’ Roses, with reunited members Rose, Slash (Saul Hudson) and Duff McKagan, headlined the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in 2016.

Underwood has come a long way since she won the fourth season of "American Idol" in 2005. Her debut album, "Some Hearts," became the best-selling solo female debut album in country music history. She revisited the album on Saturday, belting out “Jesus, Take the Wheel” with a choir.
