According to the Country Music Association and ABC, Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning will host "The 56th Annual CMA Awards".On Wednesday, Nov. 9, ABC broadcasts a live broadcast of Country Music's Biggest Night from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.

Being a part of such a historical event honoring my peers and Country Music is such an honor," says Bryan.  "When asked if Peyton Manning would be a good co-host with me, I didn't hesitate. With what he brings to the table, it will be even more fun. We have become great friends through the years.

It's the first time I've taken him to the CMA Awards. He's been before, but I've never taken him before. Taking the stage with Luke Bryan at the CMA Awards is something Manning is eagerly anticipating, she says. As a huge fan of country music, I'm honored to have the chance to perform with so many outstanding artists.

"Manning hosts the CMA Awards for the first time, while Bryan hosts for a second consecutive year. CMA CEO Sarah Trahern says Country Music's Biggest Night will without a doubt exceed expectations this year.

We are thrilled to have two award-winning hosts at the helm during an evening devoted to celebrating the best in Country Music! The two of them are hilariously unpredictable and playfully energetic, just like they are. I am eager to see what they come up with."

We thought we couldn't top Luke's explosive energy and signature charm when he hosted last year's CMA Awards, but we're bringing him back alongside sports legend Peyton Manning for Country Music's biggest night,” says Rob Mills, Walt Disney Television Executive Vice President of Unscripted and Alternative Entertainment.

The dynamic chemistry between them and their magnetic friendship is the perfect anchors for this year's star-studded show." In the coming weeks, the final nominees for "The 56th Annual CMA Awards" will be revealed.
