Carrie Underwood & Brad Paisley: Who Is Hosting the CMA Awards Tonight?

Carrie Underwood & Brad Paisley

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are hosting the 2016 CMA Awards tonight. It's a show that the two have hosted together several times and they are excited to be a part of the 50th anniversary of the event. In an interview with ABC, Underwood gushed about what the duo has planned and how amazing tonight will be, explaining that: From the get-go, we just wanted this show to feel different, and to just be elevated. Normally, we have the task of celebrating a year in country music. I feel like this year, we are celebrating 50 years of country music, and that's a big deal, trying to figure out ways to just work different people in and have people there and acknowledge accomplishments for 50 years' worth of incredible music. We've had and still have a long road ahead of us! These two often bring a lot of comedy to the show, but are said to be shying away from politics, even though the election is next week. Hosts Underwood and Paisley are both nominees tonight and they are each performing as well.
