Looks like Carrie Underwood can add a hometown honor to her long list of accomplishments. On Sept. 17, the four-time Grammy winner will return to Muskogee, Oklahoma – the city where she was born – to be inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.

Underwood, the Academy of Country Music's reigning Entertainer of the Year, has frequently spoken fondly about her Oklahoman roots. Raised on her parents' farm in the small town of Checotah, Underwood stayed in-state for college, graduating with a communications degree from Northeastern State University.

Underwood will be in good company in the Music Hall of Fame. Previous inductees include Vince Gill, Toby Keith, Merle Haggard and The All American Rejects.
