Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood return to host the CMA Awards for a fifth time on November 1, and they're already cooking up plans to roast their fellow country stars again in the monologue this year.
"We’re waiting on someone to do something really stupid between now and then,” Brad says. “I have faith."
Brad likes that they've established a certain rapport with country fans and their fellow stars in the hosting role.
He says, "I think they know who we are. They know what we do up there together and we’ve become something different together than we are separately I think, which is fun."
Even though they've hosted the show four times before, Brad and Carrie aren't slacking off when it comes to preparing for the gig.
Says Carrie, “Each year we work harder so that we can help present the best show possible.”
The 46th Annual CMA Awards broadcast live from Nashville on Thursday, November 1 on ABC.
