Coldplay’s 2005 single “Fix You” has a rich history of television appearances, but Carrie Underwood is ready to give the song a new twist.
For her upcoming VH1 Unplugged special (airing 4 p.m. on VH1′s site next Tuesday and then at 7 p.m. on the network itself), the planet’s fourth American Idol winner offered her own country-fried rendition of the durable Chris Martin tune, which you can watch right now exclusively here.
Other than the Coldplay cover, Underwood’s intimate five-song Unplugged set will also include her own chart monsters “Before He Cheats” and “Good Girl” as well as fan favorites “Blown Away” and “Do You Think About Me.”
“It was a unique way to play a few of the songs,” says the five-time Grammy winner. “And I loved being able to mix things up and perform them in a different way.”
The special doesn’t debut until next week, but you can tide yourself over with our our exclusive clip of Underwood owning “Fix You” in the video below:
