The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has announced that singer Carrie Underwood will be one of the honorees inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame class of 2018.

Underwood has won seven Grammy Awards, ten Billboard Music Awards and twelve Academy of Country Music Awards.

Underwood released Storyteller on October 23, 2015. The album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200. Storyteller debuted at number one on the Top Country Albums chart, making her the first artist to have six consecutive number one albums on the chart.

The honorees were chosen from hundreds of nominations, according to ABC News.
