Cma Awards 2019
Cma Awards 2019: With the superstar trio of Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire and Carrie Underwood co-hosting next week’s CMA Awards telecast, the night’s festivities are already set to make history. The newly announced opening performance of the show adds another historic element with the co-hosts teaming with two generations of women in country music to perform a wide-ranging medley of iconic country songs. Taking the stage throughout the one-of-a-kind performance alongside Parton, McEntire and Underwood will be Tanya Tucker, Crystal Gayle, Martina McBride, Terri Clark, Sara Evans, Gretchen Wilson, Jennifer Nettles and supergroup the Highwomen – Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby.

Also teased as one of the night’s most buzzworthy collaborations is the performance of “an iconic CMA Song of the Year and CMA Single of the Year,” that brings together Kelsea Ballerini, Lindsay Ell, Maddie & Tae, Ashley McBryde, Carly Pearce and Runaway June for a segment which will also feature a special appearance by multiple-CMA-award-winning group Little Big Town.
Last Wednesday, CMA Awards executive producer Robert Deaton sat down with Dolly Parton to read lines for the 53rd CMA Awards, which Parton will co-host with Reba McEntire and Carrie Underwood. Deaton covered Underwood and McEntire. Parton played herself.
“Within 20 seconds she ad-libs and it’s with the funniest thing … we didn’t even write anything that funny,” Deaton said. “She’s so sharp and funny and clever, and such a great writer.”
For the first time in the history of the CMA Awards, three women will host country music’s biggest night — and they boast country music’s biggest voices.
