Carrie Underwood is always spot-on in her performances, but her live performance of 'Something in the Water' at the 2014 CMA Awards was something special -- maybe because she had a little extra company onstage: her baby boy.

The singer's vocals cascaded over the audience as she belted out her new song. The stage felt inspirational and calm, and looked utterly beautiful; wisps of smoke, blue lights and a choir dressed in black completed the gorgeous performance.

A cascading waterfall appeared on the screen behind Underwood as she sang the song, off her upcoming 'Greatest Hits: Decade #1' album.

“It’s really kind of a joyous, uplifting song about changing your life for the better and kind of having that ‘a-ha’ moment, to waking up and your life being different from that moment forward,” she explains.

Underwood's upcoming album is, as the singer calls it, a "new version" of herself.

“It’s just a progression, a different sound without losing myself in it,” she adds. “I’m not taking some crazy musical departure from what I’ve done, but it definitely feels different. It will feel different, look different, sound different.”

‘Greatest Hits: Decade #1′ will hit the streets on Dec. 9, and Underwood's fantastic performance of 'Something in the Water' makes us that much more excited about the record.
