After being introduced by her fellow Highwoman Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris performed a stunning acoustic rendition of her song “To Hell & Back” at the 2020 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday (Oct. 21).

Wearing a pretty printed dress as she (and a fellow vocalist/guitarist) played acoustic, Morris hit every note with ease. “You didn't save me/ You didn't think I needed saving/ You didn't change me/ You didn't think I needed changing/ My wings are frayed/ and what's left of my halo's black/ Lucky for me, your kind of heaven's been to Hell and back/ To Hell and back,” she crooned.

Ashley McBryde, Dan + Shay, Gabby Barrett, Jimmie Allen and Noah Cyrus, Kane Brown, Kelsea Ballerini and Halsey, Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, Luke Combs and Brooks & Dunn, Morgan Wallen, Sam Hunt and Shania Twain will also be taking the stage this evening.
