CARTHAGE, TX -- The Texas Country Music Association has announced today that Erin Wilde will co-host the 2024 Texas Country Music Awards with TCMA Spokesperson Brandon Rhyder.

The Texas Country Music Awards continues to be the biggest and most influential and energizing event in the Texas Country Music Industry and is powered by the Texas Country Music Association. On the 2nd Sunday of each year, TCMA presents the annual Texas Country Music Awards where the industry comes together to celebrate and name the year’s award winners in 26 categories.

Texas Country Music icon Brandon Rhyder is the spokesperson for the Texas Country Music Association and has hosted the Awards show since its inception in 2017. Brandon suggested Erin as a replacement for Malone Ranger, who hosted the Awards show for 3 years and is now enjoying life on the East Coast. Brandon is extremely excited to have Erin join him for 2024 and beyond as his co-host for the Texas Country Music Awards.

TCMA President Linda Wilson states, “I’m so excited that Erin Wilde will be co-hosting the Texas Country Music Awards with Brandon Rhyder on November 10, 2024, at Billy Bob’s Texas in the Fort Worth Stockyards. Erin has been part of the Awards in the past as an award presenter and Red-Carpet Co-Host. We’re so happy to have her back in her new role as Co-Host of the main Awards ceremony.”

Erin Wilde is a very well-known broadcast personality and is the midday radio host on 92.1 Hank FM, 95.5 Hank FM, and 106.9 The Ranch. She has been in the radio game for a solid 25 years, the past 10 years being in the vibrant city of Fort Worth. Not only is Erin a broadcast personality, but she has also been in television and movie work, has done modeling, and has also been a professional cheerleader. She’s also the anchor of the Poser Pulse for Poser Kids on PKYTV, “after dark” host of Fort Worth Today TV and was the host of America’s Tailgate Party.
