Country music's self-proclaimed biggest night is back! The 57th annual CMA Awards once again aired live from the heart of Music City on Nov. 8.

Two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan is back for his third consecutive year as host and his second with co-host and NFL great Peyton Manning by his side.

The duo had great chemistry last year, which Rob Mills, executive vice president, Walt Disney Television predicted in announcing the co-hosts in 2022. He touted their "dynamic chemistry and magnetic friendship" as the anchors for the star-studded show.

Two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan is returning to host the 2023 show. The country singer will share hosting duties with retired NFL star Peyton Manning for the second year in a row.

Lara Spencer revealed the hosting duo in April on Good Morning America.

"They scored the biggest ratings in three years when they hosted the CMA Awards last year. And thankfully they have just agreed to do it again," Spencer said in the reveal. "The football star and the former CMA Entertainer of the Year will join forces on the stage at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena for two hours of laughs, tributes, and of course some amazing performances."

He opened the 2023 CMT Music Awards in April and took the stage at the inaugural People's Choice Country Awards in September. We'll have to wait and see whether he performs at the CMA Awards in 2023, although he wasn't in the first round of confirmed performers.

Will Taylor Swift Be at the CMA Awards?

It's unlikely Taylor Swift will attend the CMA Awards. She's not nominated for any awards this year so unless she wants to make her red carpet debut with new boyfriend, Travis Kelce, we likely won't see her at the event.
