From “Paradise City” to Prince of Darkness: Carrie Underwood covers Ozzy’s “Mama, I’m Coming Home”


After her trip to “Paradise City,” Carrie Underwood is taking the “Crazy Train” to cover another hard rock artist.

The country star has released a rendition of the classic Ozzy Osbourne power ballad “Mama, I’m Coming Home.” The performance is included on Underwood’s new Apple Music Sessions EP, which was recorded exclusively for the streaming service.

“I have always been an Ozzy Osbourne fan and ‘Mama, I’m Coming Home’ is one of my all-time favorite songs,” Underwood says.

“I’ve always thought it felt a lot like a country song, and I’ve wanted to cover it for a long time,” she adds. “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.”

As previously reported, Axl Rose joined Underwood for performances of the Guns N’ Roses classics “Paradise City” and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” during her set at the Stagecoach festival in April. She then joined all of GN’R to sing both songs during the band’s concert in London earlier this month.
