Carrie Underwood Paid Tribute To Naomi Judd At Stagecoach

(CNN) -- One of the biggest stars at country music's biggest festival had quite the weekend.

Carrie Underwood paid tribute to Naomi Judd at the Stagecoach Festival held in Indio, California.

Actress Ashley Judd announced Saturday that her mother had died at the age of 76.

The elder Judd had been one half of the legendary country duo The Judds with her daughter Wynonna. Underwood sang "See You Again" in honor of the matriarch.

"Country music lost a true legend...sing with the angels, Naomi!!! We're all sending up prayers for the Judd family today...," Underwood tweeted.

The former "American Idol" winner also brought out a special guest, Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose, and the pair rocked out to his band's hits "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Paradise City."

"Welcome to the greatest night of my life," Underwood told the crowd while introducing Rose. "Give it up for Axl Rose!"

Underwood is well known as a huge fan of Guns N' Roses.
