Country singer Carrie Underwood is not only opening for Guns N’ Roses, but she’s also covering Motorhead.

This past weekend (Saturday, August 5), Carrie Underwood ran through an 18-song set as part of her opening spot for Guns N’ Roses in Moncton, New Brunswick. Yes, that’s a weird pairing for someone known as a country/pop singer. But she leaned into the gig, covering several rock songs from Joan Jett, The Stones, Zeppelin, and, er, Motorhead.

And yes, it was “Ace of Spades.” Cool.

In Lemmy-related news, watch as some of his ashes are interred at the Wacken Festival in Germany. (Via Sean)
