Country Music Association has tapped Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley as the hosts of its 46th annual awards. The upcoming ceremony, which will air live from Nashville on November 1, will mark the fifth time the country music artists at the helm of the award-giving event.
The two singers, who collaborate on song “Remind Me”, have apparently begun the preparation for the gig. On Wednesday, August 1, CMA posted on its Facebook page that Underwood and Paisley had a photo shoot with photographer Bob D’Amico.
Later on Thursday, the Sarah Hill of “Soul Surfer” tweeted a picture of her and Paisley along with some kids on a park. “Clowning around on set! Whose kids are these?!” she wrote in a caption of the photo.
Underwood and Paisley have hosted the CMA Awards since 2008. At last year’s ceremony, they pulled a double duty by taking the stage as musical performers in addition to serving as the hosts. It’s unclear if they will perform again at this year’s gala.
