We’re convinced that the CMA Awards would not be nearly as entertaining without longtime hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, so we’re glad to hear that the American Idol alum and her country crooner counterpart are once again slated to take up the helm as master and mistress of ceremony.
Hold on to your hats, for it looks like the dream team of Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley is all set to host the 47th annual CMA Awards! This year’s awards show will air November 6th on ABC, so be sure to mark that calendar — this is a show you will not want to miss!
The identities of this year’s hosts were revealed by the members of Little Big Town, and, as was evident in their deadpan sarcasm (and speculations about the possibility of Jimmy Kimmel as a host), nobody was ever expecting that Carrie and Brad would ditch their favorite awards show…Especially not Carrie and Brad, both of whom jokingly agreed that it would’ve been very awkward if Little Big Town had read someone else’s name while the usual CMA Awards hosts were still within earshot.
Following the not-so-surprising CMA host reveal, the members of Little Big Town quizzed the returning hosts on their favorite moments from past CMA Awards. Included was the “Faith Hill Barbie, OMG!!” quote from 2011 and last year’s impromptu performance of Gangnam Style. Based on these silly bits, we’re sure plenty of hilarity will follow at this year’s CMA Awards.
Are you excited to see Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley return for the CMA Awards? Or is it time for a new set of hosts? Sound off in the comments section below!
