American singer, Luke Bryan & former football quarterback, Peyton Manning will be the Host of the CMA Awards 2022.
The hosting duo will take the stage for country music’s biggest night when it airs live from Nashville on Nov. 9 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
According to the source, on “LIVE with Kelly and Ryan“, country icon Luke Bryan shared that Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning would be joining him as a co-host for the 56th Annual CMA Awards this fall.
“People may not know this, but Peyton is a big champion for country music,” the Play It Again singer promised Ryan Seacrest on Monday.
Bryan also shared that Manning “always mysteriously packs a guitar” on trips that the football MVP invites his friends on. “He’s a closet karaoke singer,” Bryan joked.
Manning said in a statement that the new gig was “an absolute honor” for him, while his new cohost Bryan seems just as excited.
“Hey Peyton, I hope you’re ready for the night of your life,” Bryan said.
