Shania Twain received the Order of Canada on Friday in Ottawa, the country's highest honor.

The citation said the Canadian-born singer's journey from a small Ontario town to the pinnacle of the entertainment industry has inspired countless other emerging musicians.

"Today, she enjoys enormous success, yet she remains true to her roots," said the citation. "Dedicated to eliminating child hunger, she supports a number of food distribution agencies like food banks and breakfast programs in schools."

Governor General Michaelle Jean, Canada's ceremonial head of state, pinned the Order of Canada medal on Twain's lapel during a ceremony in Ottawa. The Order of Canada is the country's highest honor for lifetime achievement. The appointments were established in 1967 and are made on the recommendation of an advisory council, headed by the chief justice of Canada.

I'm kind of curious that they would bestow that award to a country singer and not someone who contributs much more effort and time to feed the needy.
