It was a great year for Carrie Underwood. 2019 saw the talented entertainer launch and wrap her insanely successful, all-female Cry Pretty Tour 360. Her television appearances were numerous, including performances on Elvis: All-Star Tribute, Dolly Parton: Here She Comes Again, Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special, and the Kennedy Center Honors where she paid tribute to Linda Ronstadt.

In addition, she made history with Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton as the first all-female hosting line-up at the 2019 CMA Awards. She shared a photo from that magical night on her socials and commented, “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.”

As it turns out, that was Carrie’s last time to host the CMA Awards, at least for a while, as she also announced that she was passing the torch to someone new.

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

Even with all of that, if you ask Carrie what the high point of her year was, it’s much more personal. In another post on her socials, Carrie shares a picture of the newest addition to the Underwood-Fisher home — Baby Jacob. “And the most memorable moment of all in 2019…becoming a family of four was the best way to start off the new year as we welcomed our precious Jacob,” she writes.
