TIME has named Carrie Underwood to the TIME 100, its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. The full list appears in the May 5 issue of TIME which is available on newsstands and tablets and at now. Carrie will headline a performance as part of the TIME 100 Gala on April 29 at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. The black-tie dinner will include present and past recipients of the most influential list.

The TIME 100 features pairings of the influentials and the guest contributors TIME selects to write about them. Brad Paisley wrote Carrie’s profile in this year’s issue. “Not only has she earned her place [in country music], she’s raised the bar: a prolific songwriter, a trendsetter and an Opry member,” he wrote. “But it’s her decency as a person that is so impressive.”    

The list, now in its 11th year, recognizes the activism, innovation and achievement of the world’s most influential individuals. “The TIME 100 is not a list of the most powerful people in the world, it’s not a list of the smartest people in the world, it’s a list of the most influential people in the world,” the magazine said. “They’re scientists, they’re thinkers, they’re philosophers, they’re leaders, they’re icons, they’re artists, they’re visionaries. People who are using their ideas, their visions, their actions to transform the world and have an effect on a multitude of people.”
