Paisley, Underwood host CMAs

Thursday, August 26, 2010 – Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will co-host the Country Music Association awards in November, it was announced Thursday.

This will be the third straight year that the two are hosting the awards, which will be held Nov. 10 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The show starts at 8 p.m. on ABC.

"The CMAs are different from any other awards night," said Paisley. "You're looking at a roomful of people who love each other. And any new viewer will be pleasantly surprised at what they relate to on the awards and what they like that they had no idea they would like. For that reason alone, this is the most important night of the year for country music."

"Carrie and Brad have done a tremendous job hosting and we are very happy to have them back again this year," said Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer. "They have developed a natural rhythm and have a great rapport with the audience - both in the house and our fans watching at home. They each have a great sense of humor and timing, which are two essential ingredients for hosting a live awards broadcast."

CD review - Hits Alive Brad Paisley's new live hits CD is a bit of a tease. That's because it only goes half way in replicating the true live Paisley experience. Watching the accompanying concert videos at a Paisley show, whether the venue screen is showing Andy Griffith during Waitin' on a Woman or the montage of recently-deceased celebrities that accompanies When I Get Where I'm Going, reveal how Paisley simply must be seen to be fully enjoyed. Nevertheless, Paisley in concert and captured on ...
CD review - American Saturday Night Brad Paisley has grown up on his eighth album. Yes, the West Virginian maintains a sense of humor, but apparently aging has left its mark on a maturing singer who has never forsaken his country roots. That is ever so apparent in songs like Anything Like Me and Oh Yeah, You're Gone. The former finds Paisley looking at the passage of time through his son's life in a tender, but not sappy look. On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. ...
