Carrie Underwood’s night just got busier. In addition to hosting The 53rd Annual CMA Awards, she headlines the first announced group of performers for November 13th.
Special guest hosts Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton will also be doing double duty. Parton will join for KING & COUNTRY and Zach Williams to perform a gospel medley of “God Only Knows,” “There was Jesus,” and Parton’s forthcoming song “Faith.” McEntire will perform her 1991 hit “Fancy.”
Additional performers will be announced in the weeks leading up to Country music’s biggest night at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. With a trio of female heavyweights running the show, it promises to be a memorable event.
“It’s an incredible honor to welcome Carrie, Reba and Dolly to the CMA Awards stage this year,” said CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern when the hosts were announced. “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.”
