Carrie Underwood Reflects on Hosting CMA Awards
For the past decade, Carrie Underwood has talked, joked and sang her way into the hearts of millions as the co-host of the annual CMA Awards. Sharing duties with pal Brad Paisley, Carrie tells us it’s tough to choose one stand-out moment.
“It’s hard to pick one thing that I enjoy about hosting the CMA Awards. Our planning time is, it’s a lot of work and it can be stressful, but it’s also fun too getting in the room with Brad and the writers and we’re just kind of swapping ideas – some good, some bad (laughs), but we’re all working together to put on the show, and we want to be respectful and we want to celebrate Country Music, that’s what we’re there for, but I don’t know if I could pick one moment that’s my all-time favorite moment ever. It’s all good.”
In addition to co-hosting, Carrie is set to perform as well as being nominated once again for Female Vocalist of the Year. The 51st annual CMA Awards will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, November 8th at 8 pm on ABC.
