Carrie Underwood gave her first televised performance of her new single “Church Bells” at the 51st Annual Academy of Country Music Awards this Sunday.

Rocking a metallic minidress and gladiator heels, Underwood belted the upbeat track as she stomped on stage with support from a full backing band.

The performance also marked the official release of “Church Bells” as Underwood’s newest single, making it the third single off of her fifth studio album Storyteller. The rage-filled, emotional song is about a woman who goes to extreme measures to get out of an abusive relationship, in the same vein as the Dixie Chicks’ hit “Goodbye Earl.”

In February, Underwood performed Storyteller‘s second single “Heartbeat” at the Grammy Awards, and even earlier at the American Music Awards.
