Carrie Underwood & Brad Paisley to Co-Host CMA Awards Again for the 8th Year

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are set to host the CMA Awards again for the 8th year on Nov 2 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The duo will join forces to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the awards. That’s quite a milestone.

“I really enjoy hosting the CMA Awards with Brad,” Carrie said in a statement. “Of course we have fun up there, but we take the responsibility of honoring the best artists in the format and shining a positive light on Country Music very seriously. And this year, the bar will be even higher as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the CMA Awards. I can’t wait.”

“I look forward to hosting the CMA Awards each year,” Brad added. “Carrie and I have certainly hit our stride in terms of balancing humor and a genuine respect for the nominees and winners. This year the stakes are higher than ever as we honor the legacy and traditions of the past 50 years. We will give it everything we’ve got.”

Brad also announced the news during his guest spot on Tuesday night’s (5/24) Jimmy Kimmel Live.
