Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning Return to Host the CMA Awards

It’s happening, y’all! Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning are set to return as hosts for the second consecutive year at the 2023 CMA Awards.

Bryan and Manning’s return as hosts for the CMA Awards marks only the fourth time in history that a hosting team has repeated back to back.

Mac Davis and Barbara Mandrell co-hosted three years running from 1980-82. The loved duo Brooks & Dunn also co-hosted three years in a row from 2004-06. Of course, the longest streak is held by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, who fronted the show for an impressive 11 years from 2008 to 2018.

Bryan and Manning became a crowd favorite last year, offering the perfect amount of fun, wit and banter that seemed undeniably hilarious. We are excited to see how this duo will one-up last year!

Dubbed as “Country Music’s Biggest Night,” the 57th Annual CMA Awards will be broadcast live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, November 8, 2023 on ABC.
