Reba McEntire Is a Woman of All Trades in 2019 ACM Awards Promo [WATCH]
Reba McEntire is returning to host the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2019, and in a new promo for the upcoming awards show, the country icon is proving that she can do it all. Press play above to watch the clip.
The recently released promo for the 2019 ACM Awards starts out with a flashback to McEntire onstage at the 2018 ACM Awards, joking that the people behind the scenes finally figured out that it only takes "one woman to do the job of two men" (a jab at Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley, and Bryan and Blake Shelton, the most recent hosting duos). After the flashback, something clicks for the singer, who jumps up and starts prepping nearly everything for the show's big night: McEntire is seen manning the camera, calling shots on a radio and adjusting the lighting.
McEntire first hosted the ACM Awards in 1986, with Mac Davis and John Schneider, and then returned in 1988, that time with Hank Williams Jr. as her co-host. In 1993, she co-hosted the ACM Awards with Randy Owen and George Strait, and she and Alan Jackson co-hosted the ceremony in 1995. McEntire finally hosted the ACM Awards solo for the first time in 1999, and then every year from 2001 through 2010. McEntire and Shelton co-hosted the ACM Awards ceremony in 2011 and 2012, before she bowed out to make room for Bryan as Shelton's co-host. Then, last year, McEntire took over the role again.
The 2019 ACM Awards will take place at Las Vegas, Nev.'s MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 7. The ceremony will begin at 8PM ET.
