Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood return as CMA Awards hosts for a third time.  Paisley thinks this broadcast brings in new fans to country music each year.  He says, "Anytime someone's a new viewer, they're very pleasantly surprised at what they relate to, and what they like that they had no idea they had any interest in prior."

This year's show, set for Nov. 10 on ABC, will offer performances from Paisley and Underwood, along with Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, George Strait, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Rascal Flatts, Reba, Blake Shelton and many more.  Gwyneth Paltrow will also make her debut country performance singing the title song from her upcoming movie, Country Strong.
