Carrie and Brad Paisley co-hosted the CMA Awards for the past 11 years.

Longtime host Carrie Underwood will be joined by "special guest hosts" Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton in a night that is said to celebrate even more of the legendary women who have changed country music. The following year, the CMA Awards was broadcast on NBC television for the first time - making it the longest running, annual music awards program on network television.

The first CMA Awards Banquet and Show was held in 1967.

Paisley's representatives did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment on why he's not hosting, but he acknowledged the change on Twitter writing: "As a fan of all 3 of these unbelievable women, I can't wait to watch". The 2019 CMA Awards, per a press release from the CMA, will be "celebrating legendary women in country music throughout the ceremony".

Carrie, 36, has co-hosted the CMA Awards since 2008.

The Country Music Association made the announcement today. Nonetheless, we're in a time when the genre's women are struggling to be heard, so the CMA's efforts are big news.

In addition, the three superstars hold a combined 14 nominations in the Entertainer of the Year category, with Dolly receiving the award in 1978 and Reba winning in 1986.

The show will air live from Nashville on Wednesday (November 13) on ABC.

The final nominees will be announced on August 28 in NY.
