It’s been quite a few years since Carrie Underwood was crowned the winner of American Idol, but she still makes a point to reach out to the contestants on the show every season.

Idol season 11 contestant Hollie Cavanagh tweeted over the weekend thanking Carrie for a necklace the country star sent her. Hollie said, “I wear it everyday, and I almost cried reading the letter.”

Carrie tweeted back, “You’re very welcome! I never miss a show! You guys are so good. Can’t wait to hear what you all come up with!”

Country fans will definitely want to tune in to American Idol this Thursday as season 10 champ Scotty McCreery performs on the results show. That airs at 8 p.m. Eastern time on Fox.
