They’re baaaack! Country superstars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood have been confirmed as hosts for the upcoming 46th Annual CMA Awards, which will take place in Nashville on Thursday, Nov. 1. This marks the fifth time the pair have hosted together.

The CMA confirmed the news in a Facebook posting on Wednesday. Paisley and Underwood were in Nashville at a photo session with photographer Bob D’Amico, checking out some of the best shots to promote the upcoming ceremony.

According to the CMA’s official web site, the first round of member voting to decide the nominees has already concluded. The second round will take place from Aug. 9 until Aug. 21, and the final ballots will be cast between Oct. 4 and Oct. 22.  The winners will be revealed during the live broadcast on Nov. 1 on ABC.

Now for the really important question: How are they going to use Little Jimmy Dickens for laughs this time around?
