"Hanging out with @bradpaisley today," Carrie tweeted (@carrieunderwood). "Just caught him in my make up chair. #suchadiva"
Considering the close friendship between the pair, it's no surprise that they accepted the invitation to host country music's biggest night again. "I love working with Carrie," Brad said before hosting the 2011 ceremony. "She's a class act and a complete balance to my non-class act. I'll try my best to not mess it up."
The "Remind Me" duet partners have proven to have great chemistry, not to mention great comedic chops, in years past, making the decision to re-hire them for a fifth year a no-brainer. "We couldn't ask for better hosts than Carrie and Brad," CMA Chief Executive Officer Steve Moore said. "They have the unique qualities of humor, talent, credibility, and natural rapport that makes them a hit with the fans and the industry audience. The CMA Awards are in great hands with Brad and Carrie at the podium."
Brad and Carrie may be the new favorite hosting team, but they are still a long way from Vince Gill's record of 12 consecutive years as host of the CMA Awards. Vince hosted every year from 1992 to 2003.
The 46th Annual CMA Awards will air live from Nashville on November 1 at 7:00 PM ET on ABC. What would you like to see on the show? Take our CMA Awards show poll here.
