"You'll Never Walk Alone" is the title track of a compilation album Elvis Presley released in 1971. In addition to the song Underwood and Adams performed, the album includes a wide variety of gospel recordings dating back to 1957, showcasing Presley's love for the format. The two vocal powerhouses also paid tribute to Presley's affinity for gospel in separate performances, with Underwood singing "How Great Thou Art" and Adams singing "He Touched Me," according to One Country.
Sunday night's televised special to Presley was mounted in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Presley's iconic '68 Comeback Special. The All-Star Tribute also featured performances from Keith Urban, Darius Rucker, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, the Pistol Annies and Dierks Bentley. Blake Shelton, who hosted the evening, also contributed a rendition of Presley's classic, "Suspicious Minds."
While the country genre brought serious star power, artists of all stripes turned out to honor Presley: Jennifer Lopez, Ed Sheeran and many others also took the stage during the event.
During the show, the audience was also treated to a showcase of rare footage and interviews with Presley's widow, Priscilla Presley, along with Steve Binder, who was the director of the original special. The iconic performer's daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, also made an appearance.
