NASHVILLE, July 11 (UPI) -- Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood have signed on as co-hosts of the CMA Awards show in Nashville for a fourth time, the Country Music Association said.

The prize presentation at the Bridgestone Arena is set for Nov. 9.

"We couldn't ask for better hosts than Carrie and Brad," Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer, said in a statement Monday about the popular recording stars. "They have the unique qualities of humor, talent, credibility, and natural rapport that makes them a hit with the fans and the industry audience. The CMA Awards are in great hands with Brad and Carrie at the podium."

"Hosting the CMA Awards the past three years has been an incredible experience -- I love it," added Underwood. "I'm so honored to be asked back with my friend, Brad. The creative process of getting ready for the show is a blast, and I look forward to sharing 'Country Music's Biggest Night' with all the fans."

"It's hard to believe this will be our fourth year to host the CMA Awards -- it's such an honor to be invited back," said Paisley. "I love working with Carrie, she's a class act and a complete balance to my non-class act. I'll try my best to not mess it up."
