Country music’s biggest night will feature one of their biggest stars in Bryan, who is a two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year.

“Being asked to host the CMA Awards was definitely something I put a lot of thought into before answering,” said Bryan. “The pressure that comes along with that can be overwhelming, but knowing I get to help honor and celebrate so many of my friends, I knew it was something I couldn’t turn down.”

The 55th Annual CMA Awards will take in Nashville Wednesday November 10, at 5:00 p.m. CT on ABC.

“I’m looking forward to making it fun and memorable and using this platform to continue to make Country Music shine,” said Bryan.
