UPDATE (4/6) -- Fresh off her 100th performance at the Grand Ole Opry, Carrie Underwood is being cheered for her accomplishments again!
This time, the country singer was honored with the Country Music Awards' International Artist Achievement Award, which, according to the CMA's website, "recognizes outstanding achievement by a U.S.-based artist who contributes to the awareness and development of Country Music outside the United States." Amazing!
This is good news for fans who were unhappy after Underwood went home empty-handed after the Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this month.
Underwood shared a photo of herself with her trophy on her Instagram. "I truly have the most amazing fans...from all over the world! I couldn't be more grateful when I get to hop on a plane to go play for some of them! Thank you all for showing up with your incredible love and support and thank you #CMA for this award! This is truly special!"

It's nice to see an artist who still appreciates her fans. Go, Carrie! You deserve this.
(3/29) -- Congrats are in order for country singer Carrie Underwood. The "Jesus Take the Wheel" singer just celebrated her 100th show at the Grand Ole Opry!
At the end of Carrie Underwood's Storyteller Tour, the star announced that she was taking a break from singing to focus on being with her family. Carrie Underwood and her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, have been married since 2010 and are raising their 2-year-old son, Isaiah, together. However, it doesn't look like she's getting much rest during her hiatus.
The American Idol winner sang for her 100th show on Mar. 25, more than a decade after she made her first appearance in 2005. At the time, Underwood was fresh off American Idol and only 22 years old. Three years later she became an official member of the Opry, and the rest is history. Talk about an amazing, and talented, young woman!
Today, the Storyteller songstress just celebrated her 34th birthday, and Carrie Underwood's family looks picture perfect. (We've secretly got our fingers crossed that she will announce a pregnancy soon.)
At her 100th performance, fellow country artist Connie Smith presented Underwood with a trophy and a beautiful bouquet.
“Opry fans, all of us Opry members, and the entire Opry family are excited when you come home to the Opry stage,” Smith told Underwood. “Even when you’ve been on the road more than 200 days a year, you’ve always come back to the Opry. That tells me you love us, and we love you right back.”
Backstage, she celebrated with a custom-made multi-tier cupcake cake and 100 pink roses.
Carrie Underwood is set to perform at the 2017 Academy of Country Music Awards on Apr. 2. She is nominated for Entertainer of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year. Underwood and friend Keith Urban stole the show at the Grammy's this year, so we can bet we're in for quite a treat this time around.
Just when we thought we couldn't love her any more, Carrie Underwood always proves us wrong!
