Carrie Underwood made the debut of “Keep Us Safe” during a special performance according to The Boot on May 21, 2014. Underwood performed the moving song during the “ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops.” Underwood was a co-writer with Hillary Lindsey, Luke Laird, and Shane McAnally on the song that was created to honor our military.

“Keep Us Safe” is available now on iTunes with proceeds going to the ACM Lifting Lives charity. Lady Antebellum, Kellie Pickler, Florida Georgia Line, George Strait, Merle Haggard and The Band Perry also took the stage during the “ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops” for performances during the tribute to our military troops.

Underwood discussed creating “Keep Us Safe” for her “ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops” performance by saying “When we were approached to be a part of the show, I was so excited to do something to honor our troops and because ACM Lifting Lives does such great work. I wanted to take the time to really think about what song I wanted to perform."

Underwood added “I had a writing session scheduled with my co-writers and friends Hillary Lindsey, Luke Laird, and Shane McAnally and I guess the show was weighing on my mind. I think we all left the session knowing the song was special because it basically wrote itself that day!”
