“I look forward to the CMA Awards every year because of the incredible performances and the opportunity to celebrate the year in country music,” says Darius. “To be invited to host this year’s awards alongside Reba—are you kidding me? It is an absolute honor. Even though this year will look a little different than normal, I know that we’re all eager for a night of musical celebration, and this year’s show definitely won’t disappoint!”
