Who’s Hosting

Country heavyweight Luke Bryan and NFL star Peyton Manning are set to co-host the event for a second time around. The duo flexed their comedic chops during their first time hosting together. One can only hope for more of the same this year.

 “I think we just got to take what Peyton and I learned from last year and build upon it and make a great show,” Bryan explained. “It was a great night and we were excited about it. It’s going to be another great night.

“When I think about being a kid and watching the CMAs and now I’m co-hosting it with a Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, it’s a wild ride,” he continued.

Who’s Nominated

Lainey Wilson leads the nominations this year with nine nods for her excellence in country music. She cinched nominations for the coveted Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Musical Event of the Year (she earned two nominations in this category), and Music Video of the Year.

Following Wilson is Jelly Roll with five nominations. Next are Luke Combs and HARDY with four. Jordan Davis, Ashley McBryde, Chris Stapleton, and Morgan Wallen all have three nominations each.
