Carrie Underwood, to Co-Host CMA’s With Brad Paisley Again

They did it last year, and were such a big hit (plus winning, once again, Male and Female Vocalist of the Year) that Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will return as co-emcees of the CMA Music Awards. via People:

Who better to host this year’s Country Music Association’s CMA Awards than last year’s Male and Female Vocalist of the Year winners ‘ who also served as the 2008 ceremony’s emcees ‘ Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood.

“Last time, ” remembers Paisley, “it was pretty late notice when we got word we were doing it, so we didn’t necessarily prepare the same way then as we will this time. This time we have more advance time.”

ABC will air this year’s ceremony live from Nashville on Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Carrie says of the gig:

“I thought we did a good job, ” Underwood says about last year’s show. “I wasn’t nervous about being asked back. But I was hoping they would ask us.”

I don’t remember how Carrie did last year. Is that a good, or a bad thing?
