Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood have co-hosted the CMA Awards together since 2008. However, this year Underwood will be hosting without him.

Instead, she will be joined by country music legends Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire. On Monday, Paisley took to Twitter to reveal how he felt about the news.

While sharing a promo clip that announced Parton and McEntire as Underwood’s co-hosts, Paisley wrote: "As a fan of all 3 of these amazing women, I can’t wait to watch.” However, he didn’t elaborate as to why he was sitting this year out.

Despite the change, both Parton and McEntire are keen on co-hosting with Underwood for the first time. It isn’t clear if the pair will be making an annual appearance for the awards.
