Carrie Underwood will not be returning to host the Country Music Awards. The country singer is stepping down from her hosting duties in 2020. Underwood has been hosting the awards show for 12 straight years. She tied Vince Gill as the most frequent host in the show’s 53-year history. While she won’t be returning to host the April show, Underwood has plenty of projects for the new year. She is set to release her new fitness guide in March.
