Carrie Underwood was back in black for a powerful performance of "Church Bells" at Wednesday night's CMT Music Awards.
Wearing an intricately designed black jumpsuit with nude cutouts and a cape, the country music star tore through the third single off her new album, "Storyteller."
The haunting performance started off with a simple banjo that showed off Underwood's incredible vocals. As the country singer made her way through the song -- which is about a woman being abused by her alcoholic husband -- a gospel choir showed up to back up Underwood and the song's poignant lyrics.
The 33-year-old singer took home two CMT Music Awards: Female Video of the Year and Performance of the Year for the song "Smoke Break."
Underwood was accompanied by her hockey player husband, Mike Fisher, at the award show, where she looked gorgeous in a variety of looks styled by Marina Toybina.
