CMA Awards 2019: Here's what you need to know about country music's biggest night

The 53rd Annual CMA Awards are right around the corner.

The annual award show is set to take place on Wednesday, Nov. 13, with Carrie Underwood returning as host for the 12th year in a row. Joining Underwood will be country music legends Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton.

On hosting the awards show with McEntire and Parton, Underwood told Taste of Country that “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."
