[ # ] Carrie Underwood quits the CMAs
December 31st, 2019 under Carrie Underwood

For the last 12 years, Carrie Underwood has hosted the CMA Awards for ABC, but she will not be back for lucky 13. The singer feels that she cannot top last year’s show, so why try. She posted a long letter explaing her decision why.

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. It’s hard to believe that it 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. 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 it and honor it as much as I do. I’ve got so many exciting things coming in the new year and beyond, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for all of us. #blessed #MemorableMoments

Will you miss her? I say they should replace her with Trace Adkins. He is the Ricky Gervais of Country Music. You never know what he is going to say, but you know it will be funny.
