The singer then joked about her portrait, which is pictured on the wall behind her alongside some notable women in country music.
Alaina added, “Ps: peep my pic on the wall. Never getting over it. 🌈💝”

Wearing her own coat of many colors, made by her late great-grandmother, Alaina delivered an emotional performance of the Parton tune. You can listen to her performance of the song below.
“My coat of many colors / That my momma made for me / Made only from rags / But I wore it so proudly / Although we had no money / I was rich as I could be / In my coat of many colors / My momma made for me,” Alaina sang on the chorus.
The country hitmaker, who became a member of the Opry in February 2022, also performed Loretta Lynn’s “You Ain’t Women Enough (To Take My Man)” during the show.
Alaina is currently in the midst of competing on a brand-new reality series called Beyond The Edge, which airs on CBS every Wednesday at 9/8c.
Additionally, the 27-year-old Georgia native is currently embarking on her Top of The World Tour, with special guest Spencer Crandall, which wraps up on April 15 in Charleston, South Carolina.
