Reba McEntire will return to host the 54th Annual Country Music Association Awards next month on ABC, with Darius Rucker joining her as co-host this year, the two revealed on Monday's "Good Morning America."
“I’m thrilled to be back hosting the CMA Awards and even more thrilled that I get to share the stage with Darius Rucker,” the 65-year-old "Fancy" singer said.
“We’re looking forward to a night of celebrating great country music and hope you’ll tune in and watch!” she added.
The show will air live from downtown Nashville on Wed., Nov. 11, starting at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
This is Reba's fifth time leading the show, having hosted last year with Dolly Parton and Carrie Underwood. It's the first time for Rucker.
“I look forward to the CMA Awards every year because of the incredible performances and the opportunity to celebrate the year in country music,” he said. “To be invited to host this year’s awards alongside Reba -- are you kidding me?! -- it is an absolute honor."
"Even though this year will look a little different than normal," he continued, "I know that we're all eager for a night of musical celebration and this year’s show definitely won't disappoint!”
