Country stars are known for giving back to those in need, and now a few of those charitable artists are being recognized by DoSomething.org 's new "Top 20 Celebs Gone Good" list. Taylor Swift tops the tally for a second year in a row thanks to her quiet $100,000 donation to the Nashville Symphony on her 24th birthday earlier this month. Taylor also joined Prince William and Bon Jovi on stage to perform "Livin' on a Prayer" at a gala in London to raise money for homeless youth.

Native Oklahomans Carrie Underwood and Blake Shelton also made the list thanks in large part to their work to help with the tornado relief effort in their home state. Carrie donated $1 million in ticket sales from her Blown Away tour to help those affected by the deadly twisters last May. Blake helped raise $6 million with an NBC telethon, Healing in the Heartland , featuring performances from Usher , Luke Bryan , Reba , Miranda Lambert and others.
