Carrie Underwood has been named to Time's annual list of 100 most influential people in the world.

Her friend and past duet partner Brad Paisley was chosen to profile her in the issue. He writes, "She’s a prolific songwriter, a trendsetter and an Opry member. But it’s her decency as a person that is so impressive."

Carrie will headline the Time 100 Gala at Lincoln Center in New York City on April 29th.
