Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood Returning to Host 2016 CMA Awards
Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will be together again soon. The country superstars and good friends will once again team up to co-host the annual CMA Awards — this year, the 50th anniversary — this November.
Both Paisley and Underwood revealed the news late Tuesday night (May 24) on their social media accounts.
"Last year they let me pull my pants down on national TV, I wonder what they will let me do this year," Paisley writes on Facebook announcing the big news.
Meanwhile, Underwood admits that she is "so excited" that she's returning to host the show, which will air on ABC.
This marks the ninth consecutive year that Paisley and Underwood will host the show together. Nominees for the awards show will be announced in the coming months. The event will broadcast live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.
Underwood and Paisley have entertained viewers for eight years with their hilarious monologues, skits and parodies. Last year, Taste of Country looked back at some of the best zingers from the awards show. In previous years, Paisley and Underwood have poked fun at Blake Shelton, Dolly Parton, Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Coldplay, Ariana Grande and plenty more.
The 2016 CMA Awards are set to air on ABC on Nov. 2 at 8PM ET.
