Country

We’re not sure what to think about this.
Carrie Underwood collectively broke the country music world’s hearts when she announced that she’s stepping down as the CMA Awards host after over a decade of leading the show.

“It’s hard to believe that [2019] was my 12th year hosting and I will always treasure every show, from the 11 that I was so lucky to do with my partner in crime and friend for life, Brad Paisley, to sharing the stage with two of my all-time heroes,” she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post. “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 and honor it as much as I do.”

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.

Fans were devastated over the news, especially considering they already lost Brad this past year in favor of Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire (who were both amazing). But after the tears were dried, the next question is obviously: Who could possibly replace Carrie?

There’s one theory that seems to be gaining traction. Taste of Country suggests it could be Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini that are next up for the big title.

The outlet claims that the “Remember You Young” singer and Kelsea have quietly been primed for the job, as they’ve hosted CMA Fest together for several years. Both have also put out multiple albums, and have “tremendous cross-over appeal.”
