Carrie UnderwoodCarrie Underwood is making room on her already full mantel for yet another award. The four-time Grammy winner and reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year will receive the Harmony Award from the Nashville Symphony, at a special ceremony on Dec. 12.

Awarded to "individuals who have demonstrated continued interest and support of music in Nashville ... and contributed significantly to the development and appreciation of Nashville's musical culture," according to Nashville's Tennessean, the award comes on the heels of a busy few months for Carrie. Inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame, the singer also performed at the recent ACM Honors event, capping off a summer of writing and recording for her upcoming album, 'Play On.'

Past recipients of the Nashville Symphony's Harmony Award include Amy Grant, Vince Gill, Martina McBride, LeAnn Rimes, Trisha Yearwood, Michael W. Smith, Rascal Flatts, Steve Winwood and Dolly Parton.

'Cowboy Casanova,' the first single from Carrie's 'Play On' album is the fastest-rising country single of the entire year, reaching No.1 after only one week.
