NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Former President Jimmy Carter and pop star and actor Justin Timberlake have honored one of country music's leading ladies, Trisha Yearwood, as the voice of a generation of music fans.

Her fellow country stars, including Lady Antebellum and Reba McEntire, surprised the Georgia-born singer with performances of her songs, including "Walkaway Joe," and "She's In Love With the Boy," during the 53rd annual ASCAP Country Music Awards on Monday in Nashville, Tennessee.

The Grammy-winning artist has sold more than 12 million albums and is also a successful cooking show host and author, Timberlake noted, adding, "Girlfriend is busy."

Yearwood and her husband, Garth Brooks, joined Carter earlier in the week in Memphis to help build a home for Habitat for Humanity.
