Vince Gill’s “Go Rest High on That Mountain” was beautifully performed by Carrie Underwood, leaving the country singer moved to tears.

Underwood was one of many prominent country musicians who participated in the television special “CMT Giants: Vince Gill,” which celebrated Gill’s outstanding career accomplishments. The Fisher Center for the Performing Arts at Belmont University in Nashville was the location of the special episode, which aired Friday night.

After fellow country singer Keith Whitley passed away from alcohol poisoning in 1989, Gill started writing “Go Rest High on That Mountain.” When his older brother Bob Gill passed away from a heart attack four years later, the Country Music Hall of Famer brought the song back to life. Gill composed the chorus and the second verse of the song while lamenting the loss of his sibling. The song later went on to win CMA and Grammy awards and has since grown in popularity among fans of Gill.
