The Country Music Association has just announced that Carrie Underwood will host this year's CMA Awards, with guest co-hosts Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton.
All together, the three women hold 124 CMA Awards nominations and 22 wins, 11 of them for Female Vocalist of the Year. In addition, the three superstars hold a combined 14 nominations in the Entertainer of the Year category, with Parton receiving the award in 1978 and McEntire winning in 1986.
The CMA Awards will air live from Nashville on Wednesday, November 14th on ABC.
I get it, the year of the woman and all. I see what they are doing and think it will be great but I wonder how Brad Paisley feels about all this? He and Carrie did a great job hosting for the last 11 years together. Brad Paisley seems to be taking his departure in stride though. He tweeted, "As a fan of all three of these amazing women, I can’t wait to watch."
