Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood To Host CMA Awards

Thursday, October 02, 2008

Last year's winners of the CMA Male and Female of the Year will be hosting this year's CMA Awards. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will share in the hosting duties. They will perform on the show as well.

Now, that is something to get excited about. Underwood will do a good job I believe for the show, and will help bring in a few viewers from a pop cross-over prospective. Paisley, however, is a choice that excites me. First, he is a great artist, a true country music artist that has the respect for the music I am always looking for. Second, his personality is great for this role. He can be extremely funny and professional at everything he does.

This year's show is just starting to shape up and is sounding really great.

"The 42nd Annual CMA Awards" airs live from the Sommet Center in Nashville, Wednesday, Nov. 12 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Tickets are still available for the show
