Who is hosting?

The 2023 CMA Awards at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, will be hosted by Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning again.

After leading the 2022 awards show, the duo is returning to co-host the event for the second consecutive year. Additionally, Bryan was the sole host of the 2021 awards show.

Apart from hosting duties, Bryan is set to grace the stage with a medley of his chart-topping tracks, including “One Margarita,” “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day,” “Play It Again,” “That’s My Kind Of Night,” and “Country Girl (Shake It For Me).” 

Reflecting on the upcoming performance and hosting responsibilities, Bryan shared with “Good Morning America,” “In the early years, the pressure used to get to me. But now, with several of these experiences, I’ve learned that everything will fall into place eventually.”

Who is performing?

Joining Bryan, an exciting lineup of performers is set to captivate the audience during the show, featuring renowned names such as Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Combs, Jelly Roll, Kenny Chesney, Little Big Town, Megan Moroney, Old Dominion, Carly Pearce, Chris Stapleton, Tanya Tucker, Alan Jackson, Cody Johnson, Post Malone, Lainey Wilson, and numerous others.

Anticipate thrilling collaborations during the show as well. I look forward to Jelly Roll and K. Michelle joining forces for a rendition of “Love Can Build a Bridge” while Tanya Tucker and Little Big Town team up for a performance of Tucker’s renowned track “Delta Dawn.” 

Old Dominion and Megan Moroney are set to captivate the audience with their powerful rendition of “Can’t Break Up Now.” 

Not to be missed, Carly Pearce will grace the stage alongside Chris Stapleton to deliver a heartfelt performance of her latest single, “We Don’t Fight Anymore.”

A particular segment dedicated to the memory of the late Jimmy Buffett, an esteemed CMA Award recipient, will be featured, including a heartfelt performance by Kenny Chesney, Mac McAnally from Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band, Alan Jackson, and the Zac Brown Band.
