“The CMA Awards are one of the biggest nights of the year for country music,” Brian, 45, said in a statement. “Being asked to host the CMA Awards was definitely something I thought a lot about before answering. The pressure that comes with it can be overwhelming, but knowing that gives me the opportunity to honor and celebrate many of my friends. It helps, I knew it was something I couldn’t turn down.”

In addition to being the host, the Georgia-born singer is also nominated for this year’s concert in 2021 along with Jordan Davis. He has previously won the CMA Entertainer of the Year twice, making him a seasoned CMA champ. Now, he will expand his role with the show as a host.

Although this is his first time as the CMA Awards headliner, Bryan has a lot of experience after several years of co-hosting the Academy of Country Music Awards, which are usually held in Las Vegas.

It’s been a long time since CMA was the only host. Co-hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley began a 10-year run together in 2008. In 2019, Underwood returned as co-host with Reba McEntire. Last year, the show took things even further with Darius Rucker hosting Dolly Parton and McEntire.

This year’s show sparked a bit of controversy when it was announced that country singer Morgan Wallen would be eligible for some awards, but not the show’s top honors. According to CMA spokeswoman Kathryn McNeely, Wallen will no longer be eligible for individual artist categories, such as Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year, following controversy surrounding the use of racial slurs.

Bryan showed some support for Wallen in August, when the embroiled singer surprised him on stage at a performance in Nashville, Tenn.
