Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood Hit ‘Good Morning America’ to Talk 2013 CMA Awards
2013 CMA Awards hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood stopped by ‘Good Morning America’ Friday morning (Nov. 1) to chat about the upcoming 47th annual CMA Awards — and to have a little fun. This is the duo’s sixth year in a row hosting the show!
And honestly, the pair make their hosting duties look easy. “We’ve figured out who we are up there, too,” Paisley says of his chemistry with Underwood. “We’ve figured out what our strengths are.”
While on the show, they told ‘GMA’ host Robin Roberts that she would be presenting the evening’s most coveted award, Entertainer of the Year. “You are to present it to one of us … even though we’re not nominated,” Underwood joked.
Naturally, you can’t expect Paisley and Underwood to be somewhere together and not have a little fun. The morning show hosts turned into game show hosts when they tested the country stars’ knowledge of one another in “Co-Host Connection,” also reliving silly past CMA Awards moments.
Neither country singer knew the other’s nationality, but Paisley did come up with his own variation of Underwood’s heritage. “The name Underwood is actually Norwegian,” Paisley explains. “It goes way back to ancient time when a logger married a lingerie model.”
You can catch the funny pair hosting country music’s biggest night, the 2013 CMA Awards, on Nov. 6 at 8PM ET.
