Country star Luke Bryan will once again team up with NFL veteran, Peyton Manning, to host the 2023 CMA Awards.

As the Spring awards season draws to a close, with the 2023 CMTs and ACMs having taken place over the past couple of months, country fans are keenly casting their gaze towards the CMA Awards.

The 2023 CMA Awards are set to take place on Wednesday, November 8, and Luke and Peyton will no doubt intersperse the fiercely contested categories with some welcome levity, just as the two did during the star-studded 2022 event in Nashville.

Although the nominees and performers are yet to be unveiled for the 2023 version of ‘Country Music's Biggest Night’, as usual, the ceremony will bring together the biggest and most exciting artists in the genre to battle it out for a range of coveted awards.

Country music has always had a penchant for famous partnerships, but this surprisingly marks only the fourth time in CMA history that a hosting duo will take the helm for more than one year.

The 2022 CMA Awards were dominated by the likes of Lainey Wilson, Cody Johnson and Luke Combs, with each artist walking away from the Bridgestone Arena with two shiny new gongs.

They'll all be expected to enjoy another successful ceremony when November comes around, but Luke will undoubtedly have to overcome stiff competition from the likes of Morgan Wallen, Chris Stapleton and Miranda Lambert if he is to retain his title as CMA Entertainer of the Year.
