Carrie Underwood has been busy preparing to host the CMA awards with Brad Paisley, but she made time to accept the 2013 Artist Achievement Award from the T.J. Martell Foundation on Oct. 22.

The 38th annual honors gala in New York honored Underwood, and also featured performances from Sting and Bryan Adams.


The country songstress was presented with the award by Doug Morris, the CEO of her record label, Sony Music. The event was also attended by Mary Fallin, the governor of Underwood’s home state of Oklahoma.

The T.J. Martell Foundation funds innovative medical research, focusing specifically on leukemia, cancer and AIDS. It is the largest foundation in the music industry. The 2013 gala raised over $1.4 million to help fund early-stage research projects.
