Carrie Underwood will soon have another award to add to her collection – this time not for her music, but for her charitable contributions.

The singer will be the 2014 recipient of the Country Radio Broadcasters Artist Humanitarian Award, honoring country artists who have “exhibited exceptional humanitarian efforts during their career.”

Underwood has a lengthy list of causes she has generously supported. She recently donated a staggering $1 million to the Red Cross, to help in their disaster relief efforts. In addition, the Oklahoma native established the C.A.T.S. (Checotah Animal, Town, and School) Foundation to help with needs in her own hometown. She has also supported various other charitable endeavors, including Pedigree’s Pet Adoption Campaign, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Save the Children, trips to Africa for Idol Gives Back, a USO tour in the Middle East, and several other causes.

“In a format rich with artists that are generous with their time and talents for a wide variety of worthy causes and needs, Carrie Underwood has distinguished herself with her depth of kindnesses and commitment to making a positive difference,” CRS President Charlie Morgan says. “We are humbled by the good work she has done and are proud to highlight her efforts by naming her Artist Humanitarian of the Year.”

Previous recipients of the honor include Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Rascal Flatts, Toby Keith, Brooks & Dunn and Garth Brooks.

Underwood will be presented with the honor at the opening ceremony of the Country Radio Seminar in Nashville on Feb. 19, 2014.
