Country stars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood have been picked to host the Country Music Association’s awards show for a fifth time.
The Associated Press reports that the Blown Away singer actually teased her return on Twitter just before the official announcement. “Hanging out with @bradpaisley today. Just caught him in my make up chair. #suchadiva,” she wrote. She later joked, “Ask @bradpaisley why he just lost $100 to me!”
Members of the CMA are still voting to decide the best in country music from the past year. According to its site, the first round of voting ended on July 9. The next round starts next Thursday and ends Aug. 21. The final votes are due between Oct. 4 and Oct. 22.
The 46th annual CMA Awards air live from Nashville on ABC Thursday, Nov. 1 at 8pm.
There were rumors that Paisley was a possibility as a judge on American Idol, but CMT notes that his busy schedule would prevent him from joining the show. He has 26 tour dates set before Nov. 1 and will then go on tour in Sweden and Norway.
