At last year’s ceremony, Guyton performed an emotional rendition of her song “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?”, with surprise piano accompaniment by Urban.

“I’m beyond thrilled to be co-hosting with my friend Mickey,” Urban said in a statement. “I love that finally everyone will get to see her infectious energy and uber-creative spirit in full light.”

Guyton added, “Last year I had the opportunity to perform at the Academy of Country Music Awards with someone I long admired, Keith Urban, and this year I am incredibly excited to share hosting duties with him.

“As I’ve said before: ‘If you can see it, you can be it,’ and it’s such an honour to step onto the ACM stage as the first-ever Black woman to host the show,” she continued. “Over the years, the Academy of Country Music has always been a home for me through opportunities both onstage and throughout their work on diversity and inclusion. This is a moment of great significance for me and I am so thrilled to share it with all the fans.”
