    Top 10 Live Tracks (2000 – Now)

    Top 10 Live Tracks (2000 – Now)

    There’s nothing we here at Keepin’ It Country love more than live music, so it only made sense to put together a list of some of our favorite live tracks to share with you all, our lovely readers! This particular list is made up of only live tracks from 2000 – 2012, mostly because trying to go through the entire live history of country music turned out to be a bit daunting. Also, all tracks in consideration had to have been released commercially at some point, so no bootlegs here! (Though that could easily be another list.)

    Now that the fine print is out of the way, check out our picks below!

    8. Carrie Underwood – “I’ll Stand By You” – I’ll Stand By You – Single

    American Idol’s reigning sales Queen, Carrie Underwood returned to the Idol stage in 2007 to perform a cover of the classic “I’ll Stand By You” during the charitable Idol Gives Back episode. The performance is quintessentially Carrie – Can nyone can deliver a vocal performance quite as flawlessly as this girl? And though Underwood is often criticized for her sometimes robotic, unemotional performances, this delivery was spot on. It’s a perfect example of the sonic gold that happens when a great song is paired with an incredible vocalist.
    Love & Theft, Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Sugarland, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson, Dixie Chicks, Zac Brown Band

    this confuses me a bit, wasn't the the track that was released for sale a studio track?Not the live version she did on the Idol finale?

    Both great by the way, one of my favorite Carrie song/performances.

    It was released on itunes as a studio track I believe for Idol Gives Back. I have it. The video was for sale too on itunes for charity.

    I'm glad Carrie is included on this list, but maddkat is right that the version for sale is a studio track. Either way Carrie is flawless lol.

    I'm happy to see Sugarland, Dixie Chicks, and Kelly C make this list as well. All great performances.

    I am assuming they are refering to the actual performance.
    And yes, it was absolutely flawless. Schooled!
    But the recorded version is flawless as well.
    so either way you look at it. It deserved a mention.

    This is one of my favorite performances from Carrie. She sounded beautiful, and she really put her heart on her sleeve. Her vocals were absolutely perfect and angelic.

    With all due respect to Zac Brown's bushy beard, I'd just like to say that my beloved Red Mollies also have a version of the number one song! Here they are singing it live, in what was new member Molly Venter's first performance with the trio.




    Back to Carrie - I haven't seen the performance they seem to be indicating in their still photo, but the African charity video was incredibly moving, and I'm proud they picked it.

    "sometimes robotic and unemotional" ?? Even Brad's hologram has more emotion than many singers who try to match their studio work live.
    Here's how Carrie coped with that song at one of her "ordinary" concerts:

    Maybe they were thinking back to her earlier days, when she was a little stiff on stage... She definitely has grown into a top-notch entertainer now!
