“Being asked to host the CMA Awards was definitely something I put a lot of thought into before answering,” Luke said in a statement, via Variety. “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. I mean, growing up in Georgia, I remember watching Vince Gill, Reba, Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Rogers, Barbara Mandrell, to name a few.

He continued, “They were so good. And then becoming a part of this amazing country music family and sitting on the front row while Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood and Darius Rucker took the reins, all of these artists are heroes and friends, and I am honored to have my name included in this group. I’m looking forward to making it fun and memorable and using this platform to continue to make country music shine.”

While this will be Luke‘s first time hosting an award show solo, he previously co-hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards from 2013 until 2017 with Blake Shelton and Darius Rucker.

The 2021 CMA Awards will air live from Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday, November 10 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Be sure to tune in!
