Carrie Underwood and James Otto were on hand to pay tribute to Randy Travis during last night's ACM Honors. Otto performed a polished version of "Deeper Than the Holler," giving it a cool laid-back groove. "What an honor to be here tonight to honor one of my heroes-the great Randy Travis." Otto said.

Underwood performed her hit single, "I Told You So." The song was Number One hit for Travis in the 1980's, and Underwood revived the song on her album Carnival Ride.
