Carrie Underwood set the stage on fire at the Stagecoach Festival on Saturday as she welcomed Axl Rose and sang “Sweet Child o’ Mine.”

A stacked lineup of performers led by headliner Underwood also included Brothers Osborne, Lee Brice, Margo Price, Colter Wall, HARDY and more.

“Welcome to the greatest night of my life,” Underwood shouted. “Give it up for Axl Rose!” They then immediately launched into “Paradise City”, with Underwood telling the audience: “You thought we were finished?”

The performance was like a dream come true for Underwood, who in 2015, told E! that she really wanted to sing with Rose at some point in her life.

She said at the time: “I’ve covered enough GUNS N’ ROSES stuff, and it was people like him who taught me how to sing.”

“I look at people like him and Freddie Mercury, those people who were doing all these crazy runs. It was so different,” Underwood added.

In 2013, Underwood delivered a faithful cover of “Paradise City” at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville.

Two years ago, while promoting her book “Find Your Path: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, And Get Strong With The Fit 52 Life, Underwood appeared on an episode of “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” and talked about flying to Las Vegas to see her favorite band GUNS N’ ROSES and called it “one of the best nights” of her life.

“We were nowhere near Las Vegas, so naturally I said, ‘Let’s go to Las Vegas with the band and go see GN’R play,'” Underwood shared with Fallon. “It’s kind of a life-long dream of mine I never thought would happen. Couldn’t waste that opportunity, so I abandoned my husband, abandoned my children, went to Vegas, and saw GUNS N’ ROSES. Amazing.”

She continued: “Usually, when I go to concerts, I’m like, in a box on the side, which is great — it has its perks, there’s usually a bathroom in there, it’s kind of awesome,’ she explained. “But you miss the energy of the crowd. Because we were in Vegas, we were just in there with everyone else, it was absolutely incredible. You could feel everybody, everybody was screamin’, I was screamin’ — I was, like, ‘I’m never gonna see none of these people ever again, I’m gonna act like a fool!. It was amazing.”
