TIME 100 honoree Carrie Underwood (l) with TIME 100 guest writer and singer-songwriter Brad Paisley.

TIME has named Carrie Underwood to its TIME 100 list, an annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. The full list appears in the May 5 issue of TIME, available on newsstands and tablets on Friday, April 25, and now at

Underwood joins Beyonce, Matthew McConaughey, Phoebe Philo, Steve McQueen, David Sinclair, Jack Ma, Pharrell Williams, Katharine Hayhoe, Hillary Clinton, Mary Jo White, Pope Francis, David Koch, Charles Koch, Robert Redford, and many others in the TIME 100 list for 2014.

Underwood 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 the most influential list.

The TIME staff selects honorees’ colleagues as guest contributors write about them. Underwood’s longtime friend Brad Paisley serves as the guest writer for her 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 trend-setter, and an Opry member. But it’s her decency as a person that is so impressive,” he says.
