“One of the highlights of 2019 at the latest, and in my entire career, up until now, it was on the stage with the legend that is Reba, and Dolly on. I am so proud to announce that we will be able to celebrate the amazing women artists who are part of the heritage of country music, the past, the present and the future, and for that I am thankful for the huge audience from all over the world who tuned in to the show,” Underwood captioned the photo, which featured a photo of her hosting the awards.

“I am so incredibly thankful for everyone who is involved with the CMA Awards in all these years. It’s hard to imagine topping what we’ve done together, so I’ve decided that it’s time to pass the hosting torch (at least for now!) others will cherish it, and honor it as much as I do,” she explained. “I’ve got so many exciting things to come in the new year and beyond, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for all of us.”

“After having my first child, I felt as though I bounced back quickly. And man, it was as if my body took a minute to get back to me. It was frustrating, because I’m like, ‘Why wasn’t it like the first time?'” “she said. “You know, I’m four years older than you. This has also helped me shift my mindset — I still have to work hard, the desire to be the best I can, but to cut myself slack and just think, ” Be kind to yourself.” It’s amazing to see how much we [women] are doing for us. We are all our toughest critics.”
