Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift sure know how to mind their manners, at least according to a new list.

The National League of Junior Cotillions publishes an annual list of the 10 best-mannered people of any given year. This year, to mark their 25th year, the NLJC instead published a list of the 25 Best-Mannered People of the Past 25 Years.

Underwood comes in at No. 13, “for consistently demonstrating courtesy to her fans.” Swift wraps up the list at No. 25, “for inspiring young fans with her music and mannerly conduct.”

The young ladies are in impressive company; Jimmy Fallon tops the list, which also includes such luminaries as Barbara Bush, Bob Hope, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey, Pope Francis and Billy Graham.

“The selections are made based on each person’s commitment to honor, dignity and mannerly conduct,” says NLJC President Charles Winters. “We feel the twenty-five individuals named have distinguished themselves through excellence of character and conduct and applaud them for their contributions to society.”
