June 4 (UPI) -- Carrie Underwood has already donated $1 million to Red Cross relief efforts in her home state of Oklahoma, which has been ravaged by severe weather in recent weeks.

The 30-year-old country singer, who hails from Checotah, Okla., said Friday that she will perform her latest single, "See You Again," at Wednesday's CMT Music Awards in tribute to the tornado victims. Viewers will be given information about donating to relief efforts during Underwood's performance.

"Right now I feel like it's very timely. There seem to be a lot of things happening where I'm from especially. I'm from Oklahoma," she said. "I really wanted to do kind of a tribute to them."

Fellow country star Miranda Lambert, whose husband Blake Shelton is also an Oklahoma native, teared up during her musical tribute to the people of Oklahoma last week.

"Sorry," she mouthed, "I love you, Oklahoma."
