Underwood was visibly emotional at several points throughout the touching tribute.
Toward the end of her performance, the Grammy Award-winning artist was overcome by emotion as photos of the 58 victims appeared on a giant screen behind her.
With her voice trembling as she appeared to fight back tears, Underwood had trouble singing the words of the song.
Several social media users applauded Underwood for her performance, and tribute to the victims.
In October, suspected gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire from his hotel window at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on attendees of the Route 91 Harvest Festival.
The devastating attack resulted in at least 58 deaths (excluding Paddock) and more than 520 injuries.
Underwood and co-host Brad Paisley also paid tribute to the victims of the hurricanes that greatly damaged Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico.
“The list goes on and on. This has been a year marked by tragedy, impacting countless lives, including so many in our country music family,” Underwood said, according to the TODAY.
“So tonight, we’re going to do what families do. Come together, pray together, cry together and sing together, too,” she added.
Paisley said the award show was dedicated to “all those we’ve lost and all of those still healing.”
“The way we see it, the best way to honor our fans is to play our music, loud and proud,” Paisley said. “Our music lifts people up and that’s what we’re here to do.”
