Yesterday it was announced that Carrie Underwood will co-host the CMA Awards once again but without her long-time co-host Brad Paisley.

So thankful to the @cma for wanting to honor the women of Country Music for this year’s #CMAAwards ! I couldn’t be more excited to get to stand up there with 2 of my personal heroes… @reba and @dollyparton are trailblazers, icons and legends. We’re gonna make Country Music proud on November 13th! #DreamComeTrue #WomenOfCountryMusic #Sheroes
Instead she’ll team up with female legends Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire.
Here’s the official word: “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.”
Both Reba and Dolly have hosted the CMAs before. Dolly was back in 1988, and Reba did it from 1990 to 1992. No word on how this will effect Reba’s gig hosting the ACMs though.
Brad Paisley responded to the change on Twitter saying
As a fan of all 3 of these amazing women, I can’t wait to watch. https://t.co/IHuX1GnhQi

I’m looking forward to these women taking the stage I have to admit I will miss Brad and Carrie’s opening monologue.
The parody songs
and the jokes
one fan had a great suggestion though to have Brad still be involved
I feel like there’s room for you with this crew though? pic.twitter.com/MnxzuSj7gN
