The country legend will also take to the CMT Music Awards stage for the first time since 2019 for a world-premiere of a song from her upcoming album.

Plenty of country legends have dipped their toes into philanthropy, but very few have managed to garner the reputation that Trisha Yearwood has through her work with several charities and for her dedication to preserving the legacy of country music. The country legend will be presented with the June Carter Cash Humanitarian Award at this year’s CMT Music Awards on Sunday, April 7.

Yearwood will also be taking to the CMT stage for the first time since 2019 for a world-premiere performance of “Put It In A Song,” the first release from her newest upcoming album. The album features songs co-written by Yearwood that harken back to the soulful sounds of the beginning of her career. While little is known about Yearwood’s upcoming album, it is speculated that we will see the album later this year.

The brand-new June Carter Cash Humanitarian Award  recognizes an artist, group, or industry veteran who demonstrates an unmatched dedication to the community. The namesake of the award, five-time Grammy award-winning country singer and second wife of Johnny Cash, was well-known for her domestic and international humanitarian work with orphaned children. Trisha Yearwood will be the first ever recipient of this award, beginning a tradition of celebrating country artists who embody the desire to make the world a more humane place.

Yearwood’s philanthropy spans several decades and areas of needs. She was named Habitat Humanitarian in 2016 along with her husband Garth Brooks for their above-and-beyond work with Habitat For Humanity and established the Dottie’s Yard Fund to help organizations cover various costs for rescued animals in 2021. Yearwood is also known for her extensive work with Stanford Women’s Cancer Center, American Cancer Society, Humane Society, Grammy Foundation MusiCares, Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential, Starkey Hearing Foundation, Susan B. Komen Foundation, and many others.

Yearwood also works to preserve the legacy of country music and uplift the next generations of female country singers. Through the 2019 “Five Decades, One Voice” initiative, Yearwood and fellow country legends Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Brandi Carlile, and Hillary Scott selected up-and-coming female country artists for a once-in-a-lifetime mentorship program. Yearwood also works closely with the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum as a guardian and legacy keeper, ensuring that the country legends who came before her are properly preserved and celebrated.

The CMT Music Awards will kick off at the Moody Center in Austin, Texas, at 8:00 p.m. ET, and will air on CBS Television Network and stream on Paramount+. Tune in to hear the first sneak peek for Yearwood’s upcoming album.
