The 51st annual CMA Awards will be held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on November 8th and while we don’t know who will take home the awards yet, we do know who will be hosting the show. The Country Music Association made the announcement this morning (June 10, 2017) that the dynamic duo of Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will be back to host the show for the 10th straight year!
For the past 9 years, Carrie and Brad’s shenanigans hosting the show have kept fans and fellow artists in stitches. Taking a look back over the past 9 years, it’s easy to see why the duo was asked to host again.

You might think that Carrie and Brad’s 10 year hosting run would be the longest but they have a few more years to beat Vince Gil’s 12-year run. He hosted the CMA Awards from 1992-2003. Something tells me that Carrie and Brad be hosting the awards for as many years as they’d like to!
While we countdown to the 51st annual Country Music Association Awards on November 8, you can take a look back at who won all the awards at the 50th annual CMA Awards here.
