Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Blake Shelton are just a few of country music’s most recognizable celebrities who go above and beyond to help give back when they can.

From Blake’s Healing in the Heartland benefit concert, which raised more than $6 million for victims of the 2013 Oklahoma tornadoes, to Carrie donating $1 million from her Blown Away Tour to the same cause and launching her C.A.T.S. (Checotah Animal, Town and School) Foundation back in her hometown in Oklahoma, among other things.

Then there's Taylor . . . Where to start? Writing a check to the Nashville Symphony on her birthday for $100,000 and her $4 million donation to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, which spawned their Taylor Swift Education Center. She also recently got involved with the Centrepoint organization, which aids young people struggling with homelessness. The list goes on and on.

Well, in the latest issue of Country Weekly, we spotlight a bulk of country celebs and their big hearts, including Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker, Lady Antebellum and Vince Gill—all who love giving back just as much as making music.
