Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood Returning to Host 2017 CMA Awards
Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood have been confirmed to return as co-hosts for the 2017 CMA Awards.
The Country Music Association announced the news in a tweet on Saturday (June 10) during the annual CMA Music Festival in Nashville, which draws fans from all over the world to Music City each year to take part in special performances, fan club parties, signing events, interviews and more.
This marks the tenth time that the superstars have paired up to co-host the show, which is billed as Country Music's Biggest Night. They've become one of country music's most enduring pairings with zany monologues, skits and parodies. The friends have gently poked fun at Blake Shelton, Dolly Parton, Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Coldplay, Obamacare and much more over the years.
The 2017 CMA Awards will broadcast live on ABC on Nov. 8. No further details of the ceremony have been announced.
"So excited to return for the 10th year and host the #CMAawards!!!!" Underwood exclaimed in a tweet on Saturday, to which Paisley simply replied, "Me too."
Paisley has had a busy year so far in 2017. He released his latest album, Love and War, in April, and he's on the road for much of the year on his Weekend Warriors Tour. Underwood has been relatively quiet this year, taking some time with her family after a busy touring schedule in 2016.
