Trisha Yearwood will be honored for her philanthropic efforts when she receives the first-ever June Carter Cash Humanitarian Award at the 2024 CMT Music Awards.

The country star will also perform during the awards show and is expected to sing a new track called, "Put It In a Song."

“We are thrilled to honor the incomparable Trisha Yearwood with the inaugural June Carter Cash Humanitarian Award at this year’s show," Executive Producers of the CMT Music Awards says in a statement. "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."

The June Carter Cash Humanitarian Award is given to an artist, group/duo or industry veteran who demonstrates a commitment to community, as well as their fellow artists. A pioneer in country music, Carter Cash is remembered for her fierce dedication to paying it forward and helping others find their voice. The singer repeatedly used her platform to inspire and uplift others.

In addition to working with Habitat for Humanity, Yearwood established Dottie's Yard, which helps animal rescues. She has also been involved with organizations like the American Cancer Society, the Humane Society, Grammy Foundation MusiCares, the Susan B. Komen Foundation and several others.
