  • After 11 years together, Brad Paisley will not be hosting the 2019 CMA Awards with Carrie Underwood.
  • Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, and Carrie will take the reigns instead.
  • Here’s why Brad won’t be leading the night.

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are staples of the Country Music Association Awards. They served as hosts for 11 years, and pretty much every fan assumed that they’d be back again.

But everyone was thrown for a loop when they announced who’s hosting the 2019 CMAs—and Brad’s name wasn’t listed. Instead, Carrie will be leading the evening alongside Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire.

Viewers had a lot of mixed reactions to the swap, but Brad couldn’t have been more supportive. “As a fan of all 3 of these amazing women, I can’t wait to watch,” he said after the news broke.

With so many supporters on Brad’s side, there are a lot of people wondering: Why isn’t Brad hosting? It’s simple: This year, the CMAs are “celebrating legendary women” in the industry, as there has been a much-needed movement for more acknowledgement (and radio play) for female singers.

“It’s a tribute to legends, women of country music, the current people, and we’re looking to the future, too,” Carrie said on Good Morning America of this year’s theme. “Looking forward, I want girls to be out watching this at home and seeing all of us on that stage and getting inspired.”

If you still need to get your Brad fix, you can catch him December 3 on his variety show, Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special. The ABC feature will include guests like Tim McGraw, his wife Kimberly Williams Paisley, and Hootie & the Blowfish. Carrie will also be stopping by, so it won’t be a totally Carry/Brad-less fall.

Brad will also be debuting a new TV show called Fish Out of Water, so there will be plenty of the upbeat country singer’s antics to go around. Though we’ll miss him at the CMAs, we can’t wait to see what Carrie, Dolly, and Reba bring to country’s big night!

After 12 years as the co-host of the CMA Awards, Carrie Underwood says that “it’s time to pass the hosting torch” in 2020.

Carrie revealed the news via Instagram, saying: “One of the highlights of 2019 and of my entire career so far was being on stage with the legends that are Reba and Dolly Parton. I’m so proud that we could celebrate the incredible female artists that are part of the legacy of country music, past, present and future, and I’m thankful for the huge audiences all over the world that tuned in to see it. It’s hard to believe that it was my 12th year hosting and I will always treasure every show, from the 11 that I was so lucky to do with my partner in crime and friend for life, Brad Paisley, to sharing the stage with two of my all-time heroes. I’m so incredibly grateful to everyone involved with the CMA Awards all these years. It’s hard to imagine topping what we have accomplished together, so I’ve decided that it’s time to pass the hosting torch (at least for now!) to others that will cherish it and honor it as much as I do. I’ve got so many exciting things coming in the new year and beyond, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for all of us.”

Carrie co-hosted the CMA Awards with Brad Paisley for 11 years, before teaming with Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire for the 2019 CMA Awards.

Carrie Underwood has revealed why she’s actually feeling “a little more invested” when it comes to co-hosting the CMA Awards this year as she prepares to head out on the stage without longtime co-host Brad Paisley for the very first time. The duo first co-hosted the country music award show together back in 2008 and have done the show together every year since. However, this year, Carrie will instead be co-hosting alongside Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire.

Carrie opened up about the big change to the hosting format during a recent interview with ABC7 Eyewitness News Entertainment’s Sandy Kenyon. Speaking candidly to the reporter, she admitted that she’s holding this year’s show a little bit closer to her heart than the previous 11 because it’s all about celebrating the women of country music during a difficult time for women in the genre.

“This year I feel like I’m a little more invested, it’s a plight that is near and dear to my heart, supporting women in country music, so I really want it to be great,” Carrie explained.

The special celebration of females in the genre comes after years of controversy surrounding the lack of airplay for females. Stars including Carrie and Miranda Lambert have all spoken out, while Billboard has reported a study has even proved country radio’s lack of interest in playing music by female artists.

The “Before He Cheats” singer admitted in the new interview that she’s keener than ever for everything to run smoothly when she co-hosts the awards live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on November 13 because of how it will shine a light on her fellow females.

“I really want to do a good job,” the mom of two said shortly after stepping in for Kelly Ripa to co-host ABC’s Live with Kelly and Ryan alongside Ryan Seacrest on November 8. “I want everything to be smooth, I want the fans to be proud of what we’re all doing.”

The star also opened up about how much fun she has while co-hosting the country music show, sometimes referred to as Country music’s biggest night, where this year she’s nominated for the very prestigious Entertainer of the Year Award as well as Female Vocalist of the Year.

“It’s fun being in the driver’s seat, it’s fun standing up there with people that you love and admire, it’s not… it’s just fun!” she said on ABC7.

It was announced in August that Brad would not be co-hosting with Carrie this year. The singer shared a sweet message for his longtime co-host, Dolly, and Reba on social media after the news was confirmed, and he made it clear that there’s no hard feelings.

“As a fan of all 3 of these amazing women, I can’t wait to watch,” Brad tweeted.

Unforgettable CMA Awards Controversies

Top 10 CMA Awards Moments of All Time

In August, the Country Music Association announced who would be hosting its 53rd CMA Awards show this year — and surprisingly, Brad Paisley’s name did not come up.

Even though Brad and Carrie Underwood have co-hosted the annual event for 11 years straight, the CMA opted to replace Brad with both Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton. When the news broke, the “Remind Me” singer was nothing but gracious.

“As a fan of all 3 of these amazing women, I can’t wait to watch,” he tweeted out in support.

Not surprisingly, a few of his die-hard fans were upset that they wouldn’t get to see Carrie and Brad’s witty banter at this year’s award show.

“Agree it will be amazing ~ but no Brad & Carrie on CMA night gonna feel really weird!! Not gonna lie, have a small lump in my throat & a tear in my eye! You will be missed @BradPaisley!!!” one fan tweeted. “So excited for Carrie, Dolly and Reba, but will sorely miss the magic of you and Carrie!!!! Hope to see that magic back next year!” a different follower wrote.

So, why is Brad Paisley not co-hosting the 2019 CMAs?

According to Us Weekly, this year’s CMA Awards will be the first time ever in history that women are nominated in every category (except, of course, Male Vocalist of the Year). Having Carrie, Reba, and Dolly — three huge female country artists — leading the show could be a way to mark such a special moment in country music history.

“It’s an incredible honor to welcome Carrie, Reba, and Dolly to the CMA Awards stage this year,” CMA CEO Sarah Trahern said in a press release. “In addition to awarding the year’s best and brightest in the genre, the 53rd annual CMA Awards will celebrate the legacy of women within country music, and we couldn’t think of a more dynamic group of women to host the show.”

Beyond that reason, ratings may also be motivating the switch up. In 2018, Variety reported that the ceremony posted a new all-time low, seeing a 34% decrease in ratings and 29% less total viewers (despite being the most-watched program that evening).

Regardless, we’re more than positive Dolly and Reba will be just as amazing as Brad — though, real talk, he will definitely be missed.

How to Watch the 2019 CMA Awards Online

Carrie Underwood fans can catch her hosting the 53rd annual Country Music Association Awards Wednesday night. While her usual co-host Brad Paisley has bowed out of the gig this year, Underwood will continue her 12-year streak with Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton joining her. Together, the three will celebrate the biggest names in today’s country music industry.

The ceremony will air live 8 p.m. EST on ABC from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, allowing viewers to celebrate the award nominees and winners from their homes. Those that miss the broadcast can stream it on services that include ABC like AT&T TV Now, Hulu or YouTube TV. Viewers can visit CMAawards.com/watch, enter their zip code and discover their local ABC affiliate, or go to abc.go.com/watch-live to watch online, although they’ll need to log in with their cable subscription.

This year’s nominees include Garth Brooks, Eric Church, Chris Stapleton, Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Luke Combs, Thomas Rhett, Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Midland, Dan + Shay and Old Dominion. Nominees and winners were selected by more than 7,400 industry professional members from the Country Music Association.

The first CMA Awards banquet and show was held in 1967. NBC broadcast the show the following year before it began playing on ABC in 2006.

Carrie Underwood Won’t Return as CMA Awards Host in 2020

For the past 12 years, when fans tuned in to watch the annual Country Music Association Awards, they were greeted by country superstar Carrie Underwood as the event’s host. But in 2020, it looks like the “Before He Cheats” singer is relinquishing her duties.

In a touching Instagram post on Monday (Dec. 30), Underwood took a moment to reflect on her 12 years of hosting the ceremony, especially in 2019 where she presented alongside fellow country music legends Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire. “One of the highlights of 2019 and of my entire career so far was being on stage with the legends that are Reba and Dolly Parton,” she wrote. “I’m so proud that we could celebrate the incredible female artists that are part of the legacy of country music, past, present and future, and I’m thankful for the huge audiences all over the world that tuned in to see it.”

She continued, thanking her other frequent co-host Brad Paisley, and reveling in how “hard to believe” it was that she got to host for 12 consecutive years. But with that being said, she stated that she would not be returning to her duties in 2020. “It’s hard to imagine topping what we have accomplished together, so I’ve decided that it’s time to pass the hosting torch (at least for now!) to others that will cherish it and honor it as much as I do.”

In co-hosting the CMA Awards for 12 straight years, Underwood tied Vince Gill as the most frequent host in the show’s 53-year history. Gill hosted or co-hosted for 12 straight years from 1992-2003. But Underwood is stepping down before she could surpass Gill’s mark.

While fans may be sad to hear that Underwood won’t be returning to host the April show, they still have plenty to be excited about: In the coming year, Underwood is set to release her new fitness guide in March, along with other projects that she teased in her Instagram post. “I’ve got so many exciting things coming in the new year and beyond, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for all of us,” she wrote.

Check out Underwood’s full announcement on Instagram below:

Carrie Underwood Says She Won’t Be Back Hosting CMA Awards in 2020

Some use the dawn of a new year to declare what they will be doing in the next 12 months, but Carrie Underwood has used this turn of the odometer to announce what she won’t. The singer took to social media Monday to tell fans that she won’t return as a co-host of the CMA Awards next November, after a successful 12-year run that began in 2008.

“It’s hard to imagine topping what we have accomplished together,” Underwood wrote on her Instagram account, “so I’ve decided that it’s time to pass the hosting torch (at least for now!) to others that will cherish it and honor it as much as I do. I’ve got so many exciting things coming in the new year and beyond, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for all of us.”

For the first 11 years of her duties, she shared the reins with Brad Paisley, in one of the most secure and longer-lasting hosting situations in modern awards annals. This year, change was in the air, as the CMAs dealt with declining ratings, as virtually all prime-time awards shows have in recent years. Paisley exited and Underwood shared duties with Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire, in what was generally seen as a one-off situation for a 2019 show that was largely dedicated to celebrating the women of country music. Besides reinforcing the theme, the Underwood/McEntire/Parton teaming helped give the ABC telecast a 12% boost in viewers from the previous year.

“One of the highlights of 2019 and of my entire career so far was being on stage with the legends that are Reba and Dolly Parton,” Underwood said in her post. “I’m so proud that we could celebrate the incredible female artists that are part of the legacy of country music, past, present and future, and I’m thankful for the huge audiences all over the world that tuned in to see it. It’s hard to believe that it was my 12th year hosting and I will always treasure every show, from the 11 that I was so lucky to do with my partner in crime and friend for life, Brad Paisley, to sharing the stage with two of my all-time heroes. I’m so incredibly grateful to everyone involved with the all these years.”

The Country Music Association weighed in almost immediately with a response, also posted on Instagram: “We love you, Carrie! You’ll always be family to us. Thanks for 12 amazing years hosting the #CMAawards. We look forward to working with you in 2020 and beyond to help spread Country Music to fans around the world!” A spokesperson said there would be no additional comment.

With the uptick in ratings this year, and the very positive reaction to the show among most country fans, Underwood can be said to be exiting on a high note. When Variety spoke with Robert Deaton the day after the CMAs in November, it seemed clear he wanted her back for 2020.

But Deaton also said he would like to have the whole team back — McEntire and Parton included — as he insisted that there didn’t need to be any “year of the woman” theme to bring that trio back for seconds.

“Sitting here where I am today, I would love to have the three of them back, personally,” Deaton said in mid-November. “I think that’s a magical combination, and that magic would not go away for a while. … Right now, today, with these ratings, I absolutely would love to have the three of them back and do this whole thing over again. But I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.”

Could McEntire and Parton stay on, or McEntire alone? Clues to that may be found when hosting duties are announced for the genre’s other big annual awards telecast, the ACM Awards, to be broadcast from Las Vegas April 5. McEntire has an on-and-off history of co-hosting that show going back to 1986, and came back as a solo host in 2018-19.

The surprise announcement this year that McEntire would be handling duties on the CMAs led to natural speculation that she had traded sides and wouldn’t be back for future ACM hosting gigs — but Deaton insisted that he thinks of the shows as complementary, not rivals, and that there was nothing to rule out Reba alternating both going into the future, unlikely as that might seem.

Underwood is set to release her first book, “Find Your Path,” in March. A 60-city arena tour wrapped up in October. Her most recent album, “Cry Pretty,” came out in September 2018. It won the favorite country album trophy at the most recent American Music Awards, the sixth consecutive time she’s had an album release pick up the prize. She also won the AMA for favorite female country artist.

  • Brad Paisley did not host the CMA Awards with Carrie Underwood this year. He didn’t attend the show, either.
  • Before you get ahead of yourself, there’s a non-dramatic explanation as to where Brad was that night.

So much was happening at the 2019 CMA Awards. Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton were maybe-kinda-sorta getting along, Reba McEntire gave a life-changing performance, and Garth Brooks won Entertainer of the Year, much to many fans’ outrage.

But there was one presence that was sorely missing from country’s big night (okay, two—Luke Bryan wasn’t there either). Brad Paisley has hosted the CMAs alongside Carrie Underwood for over a decade, but this year Dolly Parton and Reba joined Carrie, as the theme of the show was supposed to be all about women.

Still, we expected Brad to at least attend the event, so it was somewhat shocking when he never arrived. But our queen Dolly was quick to explain exactly where Brad and his wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley ended up.

“Thanks to Brad Paisley for stepping back and letting us get out and do our thing tonight,” Dolly said after the unbelievable opening number. “He and Kimberly are on vacation, we know they’re watching. We miss you, Carrie’s missing you a lot. But we told her to suck it up, she’s got the two of us.”

The couple’s actual destination was never confirmed, but posts on Kimberly’s page show they’re at some dreamy beach locale.

Which seems like a pretty worthy substitute to the CMAs!

Why Isn’t Brad Paisley Going to the 2019 CMA Awards?

Brad Paisley will not be co-hosting the CMA Awards in 2019, for the first time since 2008.

The 47-year-old had been co-hosting the awards show alongside Carrie Underwood for the past 11 years. This year, Underwood is co-hosting with special guest co-hosts Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire.

Paisley actually shared his support for the trio after the news broke that he would not return to co-host. “As a fan of all three of these amazing women, I can’t wait to watch,” he tweeted.

The 53rd annual awards show is focusing on celebrating women in country music, so it could simply be that producers didn’t want to detract from that theme. McEntire and Parton are not just co-hosting; they’re also two of the very few women who have ever won a CMA Award for Entertainer of the Year. Underwood is nominated in that category in 2019, and if she wins, it would mean that three female Entertainers of the Year anchored a broadcast that is designed to pay homage to the contributions female artists have made to the genre over the decades.

Underwood, McEntire and Parton are slated to open the CMAs with an all-star female performance that will also include Terri Clark, Sara Evans, Crystal Gayle, the Highwomen (composed of Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris and Amanda Shires), Martina McBride, Jennifer Nettles, Tanya Tucker and Gretchen Wilson. Each will perform part of a country classic in a female all-star medley.

Kelsea Ballerini is set to join Lindsay Ell, Maddie & Tae, Ashley McBryde, Carly Pearce and Runaway June for “an epic performance of an iconic CMA Song of the Year and CMA Single of the Year featuring a special appearance by Little Big Town.”

As for Paisley, he hasn’t hung up his hosting shoes just yet. He will be hosting his own televised special, Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special, which is set to air on ABC on Dec. 3 at 8PM ET. Paisley also executive produced the television special.

Underwood is set to make an appearance during Paisley’s special, though it’s not yet clear if she is slated to perform. He brought together some of the biggest names in music for the one-hour event, including Hootie & the Blowfish, the Jonas Brothers, Tim McGraw, Darius Rucker and Kelsea Ballerini. The Bachelor host Chris Harrison and NFL legend Peyton Manning will also appear.

Remember: The best way to watch the CMAs is on TV, with ToC on your phone!

Carrie Underwood has announced her plans to step down as the CMA Awards host, a role she has held for 12 consecutive years.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Underwood wrote about her plans for the future and discussed the many memories she’s made while serving as host, from hamming it up with her longtime co-host Brad Paisley to helping lead a big celebration of women in the CMAs’ most recent edition.

“I will always treasure every show, from the 11 that I was so lucky to do with my partner in crime and friend for life, Brad Paisley, to sharing the stage with two of my all-time heroes,” she wrote, nodding to the 2019 CMA Awards, which she co-hosted with Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire. “It’s hard to imagine topping what we have accomplished together, so I’ve decided that it’s time to pass the hosting torch (at least for now!) to others that will cherish it and honor it as much as I do.” Underwood also hinted at “many exciting things” on the way in 2020, but didn’t offer specifics.

Underwood and Paisley became the faces of the CMA Awards in 2008, when Underwood was only two albums into her remarkable career but already a bona fide superstar on the strength of 2005’s Some Hearts and its follow-up, Carnival Ride. Prior to Underwood and Paisley coming aboard as emcees, the 2007 CMA Awards had been a largely host-free affair, but the preceding three-year span from 2004 to 2006 was overseen by Brooks & Dunn. At the 2019 CMAs, Underwood was nominated for Entertainer of the Year, but ultimately lost that prize to Garth Brooks.

Having wrapped her Cry Pretty Tour 360 earlier in 2019, Underwood’s live schedule is light at the moment. She’s scheduled for a handful of spring dates, including a performance at Stagecoach in Indio, California, on April 25th.
