Reba McEntire will return to host the 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards on April 7. The country superstar announced that she would be resuming the role in a commercial that aired during the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday night (Feb. 10). Readers can press play above to watch the clip.

McEntire has hosted the ACM Awards several times in past years: She first hosted the show in 1986, with Mac Davis and John Schneider, and then returned in 1988, that time with Hank Williams Jr. as her co-host. In 1993, McEntire co-hosted the ACM Awards with Randy Owen and George Strait, and she and Alan Jackson co-hosted the ceremony in 1995. McEntire finally hosted the ACM Awards solo for the first time in 1999, and then every year from 2001 through 2010.
McEntire and Blake Shelton co-hosted the ACM Awards ceremony in 2011 and 2012, before McEntire bowed out to make room for Luke Bryan as Shelton's co-host. Then, last year, she took over the role again.
The 2019 ACM Awards will take place at Las Vegas, Nev.'s MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 7. The ceremony will begin at 8PM ET.
