The Country Music Awards aired a heartbreaking In Memoriam dedicated in part to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting—and Carrie Underwood sang "Softly and Tenderly" during it.

"This has been a year marked by tragedy impacting countless lives including so many in our country music family," she said in her opening remarks. "So, tonight we're gonna do what families do: come together, pray together and cry together, too."
