It’s no secret that Carrie Underwood has some serious powerhouse vocals. The country singer has also been a talented host of the Country Music Awards for more than a decade–that is until now. 

The 36-year-old “American Idol” winner recently made the shocking announcement that she will be stepping down as host of the annual Country Music Awards. Underwood shared an emotional post via Instagram about her decision.

One of the highlights of 2019 and of my entire career so far was being on stage with the legends that are Reba and Dolly Parton. I’m so proud that we could celebrate the incredible female artists that are part of the legacy of country music, past, present and future, and I’m thankful for the huge audiences all over the world that tuned in to see it. It’s hard to believe that it was my 12th year hosting and I will always treasure every show, from the 11 that I was so lucky to do with my partner in crime and friend for life, Brad Paisley, to sharing the stage with two of my all-time heroes. I’m so incredibly grateful to everyone involved with the CMA Awards all these years. It’s hard to imagine topping what we have accomplished together, so I’ve decided that it’s time to pass the hosting torch (at least for now!) to others that will cherish it and honor it as much as I do. I’ve got so many exciting things coming in the new year and beyond, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for all of us. #blessed #MemorableMoments

The Country Music Awards shared their own gratitude for Underwood via Twitter. “We love you, Carrie! You’ll always be family to us. Thanks for 12 amazing years hosting the #CMAawards. We look forward to working with you in 2020 and beyond to help spread Country Music to fans around the world!”

Hopefully more free time for Underwood will mean some extra family time with husband Mike Fisher and her children. Professionally, the “Before He Cheats” singer will be wrapping up her Cry Pretty Tour. We can’t wait to see what else is next for her in 2020!
