It was an appropriate song choice for her return to the Country Music Association Awards stage after five years.

With Nashville’s biggest names in the audience, Faith Hill performed her new song “Coming Home” Wednesday night at the Bridgestone Arena.

The soulful single dropped Wednesday, she said in an interview on the red carpet prior to the ceremony.
