“Go Rest High On That Mountain”: Carrie Underwood performs in tribute to Vince Gill

The lyrics of the song have brought comfort to many people

During the 1990s, country singer Vince Gill became well-known for his “Go Rest High On That Mountain” song, which he began writing in 1989 after the death of Keith Whitley, a fellow country singer. Although it took him several years to complete the song, it quickly became a hit after its release and won two Grammys and the Country Music Association’s Single of the Year award in 1996. The lyrics of the song have brought comfort to many people around the world over the years.

In the CMT Giants special, Carrie Underwood honored Vince Gill by performing her own version of “Go Rest High On That Mountain.” Carrie first captured the hearts of Americans in 2005 when she won the 4th season of American Idol. She quickly became a popular figure and won fans with her covers of songs such as Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and Rascal Flatts’ “Bless The Broken Road.” Since then, she has risen through the ranks of the country music industry and remains a beloved artist today, 16 years after her historic audition.

Listen to Carrie’s emotional rendition of “Go Rest High On That Mountain” as she honors her friend and co-star, Vince Gill.
