Country superstars and besties Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will be returning to host the 50th Annual CMA Awards on November 2, 2016 — and we are all saying, “Hallelujah.”

The return of the lovable duo was announced during Brad’s recent appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and via Carrie’s Instagram.

“So excited I am returning to host The 50th Annual CMA Awards w/ @BradPaisley,” Carrie said.

“This is a milestone year for the CMA Awards as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary and the broadcast is in great hands with Brad and Carrie,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “They are genuinely invested in the ongoing success of the CMA Awards, but they are equally committed to honoring the traditions that are the foundation of Country Music’s Biggest Night.”

Even after so many years of hosting the show, Brad and Carrie are thrilled to grace the stage once again.

“I really enjoy hosting the CMA Awards with Brad,” Carrie said in a press release. “Of course we have fun up there, but we take the responsibility of honoring the best artists in the format and shining a positive light on Country Music very seriously. And this year, the bar will be even higher as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the CMA Awards. I can’t wait.”

“I look forward to hosting the CMA Awards each year,” said Brad. “Carrie and I have certainly hit our stride in terms of balancing humor and a genuine respect for the nominees and winners. This year the stakes are higher than ever as we honor the legacy and traditions of the past 50 years. We will give it everything we’ve got.”

Well, I think I speak for all of us in saying, “I can’t wait to see what Brad and Carrie have planned for us this year.”
