The Country Music Association Awards It is set to begin by honoring country music legend Loretta Lynn, who died on October 4 at the age of 90.
Lin entered the music field at a young age, and in 1971 released “The Coal Mine’s Daughter”, the song she is best known for in her career. She won the CMA Award for Female Female Vocalist of the Year in 1967, 1972 and 1973. Among her other works are “One’s On the Way”, “Somebody Somewhere” and “Don’t Come Home a-Drinkin”.
The awards show will see a handful of performances. Kelsey Ballerini was set on stage with Kelly Clarkson and Carly Pierce singing “You Drunk, Go Home,” as well as a duet between Hardy and Lenny Wilson singing “Wait in the Truck.” Zac Brown Band will collaborate with Jimmie Allen and Marcus King on Out In the Middle.
Other performers who will take the stage that night include Luke BrianMiranda Lambert, Carly Pierce, Carrie Underwood and Morgan Wallen, who will sing his song “You Proof”.
When it comes to hosting the show, Bryan and Peyton Manning Excited to have fun together on stage and not the least bit nervous about the night of the show.
Brian, who hosted the show in 2021, couldn’t miss an opportunity to mock his co-host this year, by pointing out Manning’s increased involvement in commercials and many other TV shows.
“I’m definitely not nervous about Peyton messing around because he screwed up this TV material,” Bryan explained. “Just watch the Super Bowl, it’s 83% of all the commercials in the Super Bowl. The fun part about the night is that there’s always the beauty of being the host. It’s going to be fun Peyton and I right now.”
One element of the night that Brian can’t get enough of is the energy he feels while having him on stage. And compare the energy he feels while hosting it with the energy that professional athletes might feel when they head out onto the basketball court or football field, meaning there is an audience cheering for him.
“I’m warmed up. Not to make silly analogies, but to me, it’s like getting into a big football game, the energy going out and starting the show, making some fun jokes, and roasting some entertainer out there,” Brian explained. “A room is a magical thing to be in, and it’s up to us to be normal and have fun, and for the people in the house to see that we don’t really take ourselves seriously, but we do take the night seriously.”
Manning and Brian, Who have been friends for some time, have no problem making jokes at each other’s expense.
“Luke and I have played golf together for years in Indianapolis, before taking on a charitable fundraising role for this children’s hospital that I am very involved with,” Manning said. “Lots of golf, sometimes you’ll show up in shorts, and they’ll say, ‘Hey, you’ve got to wear long pants,’ but that was different, because you can wear shorts in this club, but Luke showed up in shorts, but they were just too tight. I’m like “Luke, you can’t wear those skinny pants here.” We cut them off and they’re too tight shorts.
Brian added, “Great memory when I actually played Mile High Stadium and Peyton came out, Brandon Stokley and he, who had played together for years, got a football backstage in the locker room and Peyton would fire Stokley in the head with it whenever he wasn’t looking, and it was fun Seeing these two torture each other.”
The CMA is scheduled to air on Wednesday, November 9.
