In an interview with CMT, Underwood revealed what it feels like to be a part of the show with incredible country songstresses like McEntire and Parton.

"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."



This is the first time in 12 years that the singer will host the show without her former sidekick, Brad Paisley. Nonetheless, she is thrilled that the show will honor the female gems of country music.

The country star expressed her excitement about co-hosting the show with country stars who inspired Underwood with her career aspirations. She said:


“I was very pleased and happy and excited to hear the news that the CMA wanted to have this year’s show be focused on women in country music — past, present, future, all of us together standing united,” she said, adding of her co-hosts."


Shortly after the news was announced, the "How Great Thou Art" singer praised the hosting lineup, calling McEntire and Parton the "trailblazers" and "icons" of country music.



Currently, Underwood is busy with her Cry Pretty Tour 360 which will wrap up on October 31. She has been nominated for three CMA Awards this year for her album "Cry Pretty."

The award show will air live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on November 13 on ABC.
