"I look forward to the CMA Awards every year because of the incredible performances and the opportunity to celebrate the year in Country Music," Rucker, 54, said in the release. "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," he added.
McEntire is up for the musical event of the year award for her performance of "Be a Light" alongside Thomas Rhett, Hillary Scott, Chris Tomlin and Keith Urban. (The song's proceeds went to a coronavirus relief fund.)
The CMA nominees were announced earlier this month with Miranda Lambert leading the pack with seven nominations, including the entertainer of the year category. Luke Combs, who's also up for that award, is nominated six times.
The 54th Annual CMA Awards will air Wednesday, Nov. 11 (8:00 – 11:00 PM/EST) on ABC.
