Underwood, Paisley to host CMA Awards Nov. 10
Question of the Day
NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Carrie Underwood's wedding was one of the most special days of her life, but it will likely become fodder for jokes when she and Brad Paisley host the Country Music Association Awards for the third year in a row.
The two will anchor the Nov. 10 ceremony in Nashville, and Paisley said of Underwood's July union with NHL player Mike Fisher: "We have to bring it up."
"It was big news in country music, so if it is that, it is fair game, as well as Nashville or current events," he said in an interview with Underwood on Thursday. "It's worth talking about anything like that that people will relate to."
The two joked about Paisley's wedding gift to Underwood, a bowl, which Paisley said his wife picked out.
"Is it something you wanted or it's in the pile of re-gift items?" asked Paisley.
"You're going to get it back three Christmases from now," said Underwood.
"I can't wait to get that back," said Paisley.
They also talked about Underwood's wardrobe. She is known to switch up her outfits multiple times throughout the show, changing more than 10 times last year.
"I can't change anymore than I did last year," said Underwood. "I don't think that's a physical possibility, so I'm not going to try to outdo the costumes."
So maybe it's Paisley's turn to change his outfits this year?
"I think that would be awesome," said Underwood. "I'm going to stay in the same thing all night. I'm going to show up in my pajamas, and you're going to do your thing."
As for hosting together, the two have a natural timing and chemistry together that comes across on stage and in-person.
"I do feel like we do have our own roles that we fall into and compliment each other," said Underwood.
"At this point three years later, we have each other pretty well figured out, so I think it will go really smooth," said Paisley.
The CMA Awards air live on ABC from Bridgestone Arena.
