Carrie Underwood and her hosting sidekick Brad Paisley will return to host the Country Music Association Awards on ABC this fall for an eighth straight year.

Scheduled for Nov. 4, the 49th annual awards show will air live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Paisley, who is currently touring on his Crushin' It World Tour and has just joined Blake Shelton as a judge on The Voice, has won 14 CMA awards, making him No. 5 on the list of top CMA winners of all time.

Meanwhile, new momma Carrie Underwood has seven Grammy Awards and five CMA awards of her own.

The live show not only recognizes the top county music performances of the year, it features live performances and one-of-a-kind collaborations from many of the biggest names in country music.

Carrie Underwood and Paisley have their own unique hosting routine and surprises are always expected. Last year, Paisley “accidentally” blurted out the sex of Underwood’s baby. It was a boy, by the way.

A promo clip shows just how cute the county duo can be and why they have returned for eight straight years.

The nominees in each of the 12 categories, including Male Vocalist, Female Vocalist, Song, Single and Entertainer of the Year, will be announced on Sept. 9.

Who's tuning in to see what shenanigans Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley get into for the 2015 CMA Awards?
