After winning Season 4 of the reality competition in 2004, Carrie returned to the show during the Season 17 finale on May 19 to perform her new single, “Southbound.” Decked out in a colorful sequined dress, Carrie delivered a rousing performance of the new tune, prompting judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie to get out of their seats to shake a leg.

Penned by Carrie, David Garcia and Josh Miller, “Southbound” is currently No. 35 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after three weeks.
