Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley Share Their Favorite CMA Awards Hosting Moments
With nine years of co-hosting under their belts, Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley have had some pretty hysterical moments together onstage at the CMA Awards, and now they're sharing some of their favorite memories with fans.
Sitting down with CMA Insider, the dynamic duo discuss a myriad of their best moments over the years. Just some of their classic bits co-hosting country's biggest night include performing the famous "Gangnum Style" choreography in 2012, poking fun at Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on a number of occasions and making relevant jokes about world events, like "Obamacare by Morning" and "72 Days Amen" featuring Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet singing a song about Kim Kardashian's notorious 72-day marriage.

"He pulled a miracle off that I was anywhere near correct," Paisley joked about trying to master Psy's signature moves. And as much fun as the two have at the expense of McGraw and Hill, Underwood suspects the couple will have their revenge one day. She also foreshadows that the best is yet to come for their comedic routines.
"Our best opening jokes are going to be this year. I can feel it," Underwood says with a smile about the twosome's tenth consecutive year hosting together.
The 2017 CMA Awards will feature a variety of collaborations, from Paisley and Kane Brown teaming up on Paisley's latest single, "Heaven South," to Maren Morris' performance with Niall Horan for their duet "Seeing Blind" and many more. Pink, McGraw and Hill, Keith Urban, Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan and Underwood are just a few of the others set to take the stage when the CMA Awards broadcast live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Nov. 8 at 8PM ET on ABC.
