Chrissy Metz wowed the audience at the American Country Music Awards last night belting out her song “I’m Standing With You” from the upcoming film “Breakthrough”, in which she stars as real-life character Joyce Smith.
She was accompanied in the Las Vegas performance by Carrie Underwood, Micky Guyton, Maddie & Tae, and Lauren Alaina.

The country singers all contributed to “Breakthrough’s” soundtrack, as well as Adam Hambrick and Darius Rucker.
“I’m Standing With You” features beautiful faith-inspired lyrics that complement the Christian movie hitting theaters April 17:
“When your faith is, faith is running low
I never lose faith in you
When the nights around you
And you think that no one cares about you
I will go and throw my arms around you
I’ll be there
Through whatever you go through
I’m standing with you”
Metz was over the moon that she got the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform alongside such world-class talent on Sunday.
“I’m excited. I mean, you know, as a little girl, you always dream about something like this. But to actually do it and to hold a stage with these incredible women — Lauren Alaina, Carrie Underwood, Maddie + Tae, Mickey Guyton. Are you kidding?” she told PEOPLE. “It’s really exciting.”
Though “This Is Us” fans have seen Metz display her singing talent as Kate Pearson on screen, nothing can quite compare to this vocal powerhouse’s riveting on-stage delivery.
