Carrie Underwood is excited to be part of The Emmys Awards' musical tribute to television's role in the '60s, which includes coverage of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 and The Beatles’ first performance on The Ed Sullivan Show in February 1964.

She tells us, "Hopefully it will just be a very beautiful tribute to an important time. I'm honored to provide the soundtrack for that."

The Emmys air at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
