Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are returning to host the Country Music Association Awards for the sixth consecutive year. The 47th Annual CMA Awards will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, Nov. 6, beginning at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
The announcement was made by Little Big Town, who hosted CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock last night (Monday, Aug. 12) on ABC.
“Carrie and Brad are the consummate hosts,” said Ed Hardy, President of the CMA Board of Directors. “They have the respect of our industry, artistic credibility, critical acclaim, and a quick-witted, genuine rapport that makes them popular with our audience and the viewers at home. We are delighted to have them back as hosts for the sixth year.”
