Country superstar Carrie Underwood covers Ozzy Osbourne’s 'Mama, I’m Coming Home’

'I hope we've done Ozzy proud and I hope he likes it," Underwood said

Fresh off her appearances with Guns N' Roses — first with Axl Rose at the Stagecoach Festival, and then with the full band during their own show in London – country superstar Carrie Underwood has flexed her metal muscles again with a new cover of Ozzy Osbourne's "Mama, I'm Coming Home."

Underwood recorded her version of the classic power ballad, from Ozzy’s 1991 album No More Tears, in Nashville for Apple Music Sessions, a series that features artists pairing their own songs with their favorite covers. For the performance, Underwood paired “Mama” with a version of her own "Ghost Story," from her new album, Denim & Rhinestones.

"It's one of my all-time favorite songs," Underwood said of "Mama." "I've always thought it felt a lot like a country song, and I've wanted to cover it for a long time. This was a really fun opportunity for me to be able to finally make that happen. I hope we've done Ozzy proud and I hope he likes it."
