(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)
I can’t believe the CMA Awards are already approaching. They are about a week-and-a-half
away. But Carrie Underwood is more than ready for the show. And according
to CMT Radio, she has some fresh material lined up for her hosting duties with Brad
“Well, there’s always new songs, new artists up for nominations, new things that they have done,” she
said. Plus, there are “new political issues, and this is an election year and we’re right before the election, so I’m sure
we’ll be touching on that.”
This is Underwood and Paisley’s fifth year of hosting the show, so they’re pros. And that
means whatever political and/or election jokes they have up their sleeve will earn them a lot of laughs. Hopefully
more than they got from this bingo crowd.
The show airs live from Nashville on Nov. 1 on ABC.
