The braids are pinned on top of her head, and she’s wearing a dirndl – yep, Carrie Underwood certainly looks the part in the newly released poster for The Sound of Music.

The Grammy winner plays Maria, the role made famous by Julie Andrews, in NBC’s live production of the beloved musical.

She’s starring opposite True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer, who’ll be playing Captain von Trapp, the widower who falls for Maria when she becomes the governess to his seven kids.

The new three-hour production is based on the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical that ran on Broadway before being adapted for the 1965 hit film starring Andrews and Christopher Plummer.
