Carrie Underwood Named as One of TIMES 100 Most Influential People

Carrie Underwood

TIME has named six-time Grammy winner Carrie Underwood to the TIME 100, its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.  The full list and related tributes appear in the May 5 issue of TIME, available on newsstands and tablets on Friday, April 25, and now at www.time.com/time100.

Carrie will also headline a performance as part of the TIME 100 Gala to be held on April 29 at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City.  The black-tie dinner will include present and past recipients of most influential list.

The TIME 100 features pairings of the influentials and the guest contributors TIME selects to write about them.  Carrie’s longtime friend Brad Paisley serves as the guest writer for her profile in this year’s issue.  He shares, “Not only has she earned her place [in country music], she’s raised the bar: a prolific songwriter, a trend-setter, and an Opry member.  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.  As TIME has described the list in the past, “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. 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.”
