Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning to Host 2022 CMA Awards

The 2022 CMA Awards have announced this year’s hosts will be Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning!

Luke, who hosted the award show for the first time last year, will be joined by the Pro Football Hall of Famer on the November 9th broadcast. “When I was first asked if Peyton Manning was someone I would consider co-hosting with, I didn’t hesitate,” says Bryan. “We have become great friends through the years, and what he brings to the table is gonna make it even more of a blast.” Adds Manning, “I am such a huge fan of country music, so to have the chance to stand among so many incredibly talented artists is an absolute honor.”

The 56th CMA Awards will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 9 at 8 pm ET on ABC. Final nominees will be revealed in the coming weeks.
