The executive producers of the CMT Music Awards spoke about why Yearwood deserves the award in a statement. “We are thrilled to honor the incomparable Trisha Yearwood with the inaugural June Carter Cash Humanitarian at this year’s show. Trisha has a unique ability to rally a community, whether that may be families in need with Habitat for Humanity or uplifting her fellow artists and entertainers trying to carve a path in the industry,” they shared in a statement.

“She embodies the bold strength of June, who tirelessly devoted herself to service and community, and the namesake for this award,” they added. “Both multi-hyphenate trailblazers eloquently crafted a script for others to model, letting their hearts and authenticity guide their personal, professional, and public lives.”

Yearwood will receive the June Carter Cash Humanitarian Award at the 2024 CMT Awards. The show will air live on CBS on April 7.
