CMA Announce 2011 Award Show Hosts: Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley

The CMA have announced the hosts for the CMA 2011 country award show, set to air on ABC on November 9th.

This marks the fourth consecutive year both artists were chosen to host the prestigious country award show.

Carrie and Brad are known for their hosting dynamics and their ability to truly entertain when hosting, as exemplified by CMA chief executive Steve Moore who said both Underwood and Paisley “have the unique qualities of humor, talent, credibility and natural rapport that makes them a hit with fans and the industry audience.”

Interestingly, both artists are rumored to be performing together as well on the show, which would be their single Remind Me’s first televised performance. The announcement was also broadcast via Facebook from the set of the music video for Remind Me.

Remind Me is currently #12 on the country charts, having been released a few weeks ago. It’s already shaping up to be one of the year’s biggest hits. And 2011 has had many big hits on the country charts so far. You can read my review and listen to Remind Me here.

Meanwhile, you can watch bits of Carrie and Brad hosting:

  1. Their onscreen magic continues… let’s just hope Carrie finally gets nominated for CMA Entertainer of the Year – they better not snub our girl again… if you read some of the CarrieFan pages Carrie really has had another incredible year with live shows, movies, tv, tributes, etc… wish her luck!!


  2. Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, and Keith Urban are all for sure getting nominations. With the level of super-stardom that Blake has climbed into this past year, I wouldn’t be surprised if he get a nod. That leaves Carrie, Miranda, Jason, ZBB, Lady A, Kenny, and Toby all in the running. For the remaining slots.

    I’m going to be beyond pissed if Taylor wins. So what if she’s had a major tour this year. Carrie wasn’t recognized last year for the last leg of the Play On tour.

    If anything, I’d love to see Keith Urban finally win the big one.
