Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning have been announced as the hosts of the 2022 CMA Awards! It’ll be Luke’s second time hosting following his holding of the reins in 2021. Peyton Manning held a guest spot and also presented an award at the 2016 show. “Being a part of such a historical night that honors my peers and country music is such a privilege,” Luke Bryan said of the honor. “When I was asked if Peyton Manning was someone I would consider co-hosting with I didn’t hesitate. We have become great friends through the years and what he brings to the table is gonna make it even more of a blast. I know he’s been to the CMA Awards before, but he’s never been with me. Hey Peyton, I hope you’re ready for the night of your life!”

Peyton Manning echoed his cohost’s excitement. “I cannot wait to head to Nashville and take the CMA Awards stage alongside my friend Luke Bryan,” he said. “I am such a huge fan of country music, so to have the chance to stand among so many incredibly talented artists is an absolute honor.”

“During an evening when we celebrate the best of the best in country music, we are thrilled to have two award-winning hosts at the helm! I cannot wait to see what Luke and Peyton have up their sleeves, which I’m sure will be hilariously unpredictable and playfully energetic, just like the two of them,” CMA CEO Sarah Trahern stated.

“Just when we thought we couldn’t top Luke’s explosive energy and signature charm as host of last year’s CMA Awards, we’re bringing him back alongside sports legend Peyton Manning for Country Music’s Biggest Night,” added Rob Mills of the Walt Disney Company. 

Nominees for awards will be announced in the coming weeks. The 56th annual CMA Awards takes place at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville November 9th. The ceremony will be broadcast on ABC. Follow CMA on Twitter and Instagram for more updates.
