American Idol has turned out many big stars, and now one more very famous name will be returning to this season – Carrie Underwood will be performing and during Grand Ole Opry week next week.


The country star will be performing her hit single "I Told You So" with Randy Travis, who originally recorded the hit in 1988.


"I am so excited that two of my musical passions, American Idol and the Grand Ole Opry, are joining together to create a really special week of music," says Carrie. "I am always thrilled to return to the Idol stage, and am so proud to be bringing with me one of my heroes, Randy Travis. I knew the Opry first, but Idol gave me my start and helped lead me to the Opry stage. It’s a great feeling to be able to help bring these two worlds together."


Randy Travis will also be helping out by mentoring contestants for their Opry performances, and he and Carrie will release a digital single of "I Told You So" at that time as well.
