Carrie Underwood Says 'Choose Kindness' in Anti-Bullying Campaign

October is National Bullying Prevention Month and Carrie Underwood is taking part with a PSA to spread kindness.

The anti-bullying campaign, called Choose Kindness, includes 20 stars affiliated with ABC, Disney Channel, XD Disney and Radio Disney, including Nathan Fillion, Grace Park and Ryan Seacrest. Partnering with GLSEN, GLAAD, PACER, No Bully, Common Sense Media and ESPN's Shred Hate campaign, the initiative works to inspire families and children to end bullying within schools.

The public service announcements will be shared on Disney Channel, Freeform and ABC during the month-long campaign.

"It's time to stop the hate and spread some love. You are beautiful. You are smart. You are awesome and you never have to change for anybody," Underwood says in the public service announcement.  "You have the voice and you have the power. We are so much stronger when we come together. It's your choice, so choose to be inspired. Choose to be accepting. Be strong, be brave, be awesome, be daring, be kind. Choose kindness."

The PSA also features the country star's new single "Love Wins." The song, written by Underwood, David Garcia and Brett James, shares a similar message of love, compassion and kindness.

Underwood, who released her sixth studio album Cry Pretty on Sept. 14, will be honored at the 2018 CMT Artists of the Year ceremony on Oct. 17 along with Loretta Lynn, Maren Morris, Miranda Lambert, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town's Kimberly Schlapman and Karen Fairchild and Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott.

In November, Underwood will co-host the 2018 CMA Awards with Brad Paisley.
