Carrie Underwood stepping down as CMA Awards host after 12 years
Carrie Underwood will longer host the CMA Awards.
"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," she said on Instagram. "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."
Underwood hosted this year's show alongside Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton after co-hosting with fellow country singer for the previous 11 years.
