"I am beyond excited, and maybe a little nervous, to host an awards show for the very first time,” the country singer said in a statement. “Luckily, it’s not all about me - it’s about celebrating bad ass music videos and the brilliant men and women that help us create them. I’ve loved watching and being part of this event in the past and I think the fans are really going to enjoy what we have planned for them. It’s going to be a blast!”

"I have so many great memories of the show -- from watching as a fan at home to accepting my first industry award win on the CMT stage. I‘m excited to join this year as a first-time host and can’t wait for everyone to see the amazing performances that are lined up this year."
"I’m so excited to be co-hosting the 2020 CMT Music Awards this year!" Hyland said of hosting. "Fans are the backbone of music and art; without them we would never be able to do what we love."
