Underwood donned a gown with see-through mesh that was heavily beaded in gold, complete with a cape. Parton showed off in a shimmery white gown with a knee-high slit. McEntire also wore glitter with an all-black form-fitting dress.
Underwood is nominated for the coveted Entertainer of the Year award at the 2019 CMA Awards, the only female nominated in 2019. She is also up for Female Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for Cry Pretty
All three hosts performed in the opening number during the show alongside Terri Clark, Sara Evans, Crystal Gayle, the Highwomen (Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, Maren Morris and Amanda Shires), Martina McBride, Jennifer Nettles, Tanya Tucker and Gretchen Wilson.
McEntire and Underwood will also perform separately, and Parton will collaborate with For King & Country and Zach Williams on a gospel medley.
"We just want to be respectful of our genre and of this awards show, because it’s so important to us, and shine a light on what I think is the backbone of country music, and that’s the females that have come before all of us and will come in the future," Underwood previously said of tonight's show.
Combined, the three co-hosts have a total of 124 CMA Awards nominations and 22 total award wins. Notably, Underwood has had 14 consecutive nominations for Female Vocalist.
The 2019 CMA Awards air live on ABC at 8PM ET, broadcast live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.
