For the first time in more than a decade, the host's role in the CMA Awards has been radically changed. Carrie Underwood will re-host the CMA Awards in 2019, but longtime partner Brad Paisley will not share the stage with her this November.
Underwood will instead work with two other legendary country women, Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire, to honor the legendary women of country music all night. And that seems to be alright for Paisley.
When Paisley realized that this year is all about women's power, he said on Twitter: "As a fan of all three of these amazing women, I can not wait to see them." 19659002] Although his feeling was quite friendly, it is difficult to deny that he will really enjoy the audience POV show this year. How could he not, with such amazing talent on stage?
In addition, fans sweeten Paisley's situation, despite overwhelmingly approving the change, and leave nice comments on the social media to let them know they'll be very happy as he returns to his usual hosted appearance. "We are also excited, but you should be better back," one fan advised, while several others shouted, "Miss you!"
The CMA Awards will air on ABC on November 1
