Carrie Underwood will be back to host the CMA Awards November 13th. Brad Paisley will not. Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire will be her co-hosts this time around as the CMAs celebrate the iconic women of country music throughout the night. Carrie and Brad have co-hosted the show since 2008. Their 11-year run is second only to Vince Gill's 12 years as host. The nominees for the 2019 CMA Awards will be announced Aug. 28. Performers, presenters and other details about the 53rd annual CMA Awards will come as we get closer to the show.
