Carrie Underwood is one of the biggest modern country music stars, but she still makes time to give back. The “Dirty Laundry” singer just donated $100,000 to girl’s sports teams in Houston, Texas via a partnership with Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation.

She surprised Aldine Independent School District members at the grand opening of a new Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Texas on Oct. 21. She presented them with a check on behalf of her clothing line, Calia by Carrie Underwood.

“I am so honored to partner with the Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation as we continue to give back to girls sports teams across the country,” Underwood said in a press release. “Through today’s donation, we aim to support the girls’ athletic programs in Houston, providing many girls with the opportunity to participate in sports.”

This donation follows Underwood’s gift to the athletic departments in her hometown of Checotah, Okla. earlier this year.

Carrie will return to Nashville in time to co-host the 50th annual CMA Awards with Brad Paisley. This year, she’s up for four awards, and is the only female nominated in the “Entertainer of the Year” category. Underwood will be going up against Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban for the coveted title.

You can catch Underwood as co-host of the 50th annual CMA Awards, alongside Brad Paisley, Nov. 2 on ABC.
