It's a bird, it's a plane, it's...Carrie Underwood!

The 33-year-old country star recently jetted to Sydney, Australia, where she is set to perform two concerts this week as part of her Ripcord world tour, and made a pit stop over the weekend to do something unusual and exhilarating for herself; She decided to go skydiving.

Underwood chronicled her death-defying adventure on Instagram, starting with a montage of selfie videos of her on the ground, lip-synching songs to get her in the mood (and likely try to calm her nerves), such as the 1969 hit "Leaving on a Jet Plane" by the late John Denver, the Pointer Sisters' 1983 song "Jump" and of course, Tom Petty's 1989 anthem 'Free Fallin."

"What are we doing today?" she wrote.
