In an interview with Universal Music Nashville, she expressed that hosting the show with these two powerhouses means a lot to the “Cry Pretty” singer.

“It does not get bigger than that or better than that. I feel like the three of us love what we do so much, and we love country music, and it means something, I feel like, to have us up there on that stage kind of driving the bus for the evening and setting the tone.”

The 53rd annual awards show aims to showcase and honor the women of country music, past and present. Underwood is “very pleased and happy and excited” with the idea of having a heavy focus on women for the prestigious show.

“We just want to be respectful of our genre and of this awards show, because it’s so important to us, and shine a light on what I think is the backbone of country music, and that’s the females that have come before all of us and will come in the future.”

CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern welcomed Parton and McEntire with vigor and enthusiast in a statement.

“It’s an incredible honor to welcome Carrie, Reba, and Dolly to the CMA Awards stage this year. In addition to awarding the year’s best and brightest in the genre, ‘The 53rd Annual CMA Awards’ will celebrate the legacy of women within Country Music, and we couldn’t think of a more dynamic group of women to host the show.”
