Multiple CMA-winning artists Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley have been confirmed to take the stage of this year's CMA Awards as co-hosts. This is the second time they are billed to take the hosting job at the event as they had the same duty last year.

"I thought we did a good job [last year]," Carrie offered her comment to People. "I wasn't nervous about being asked back. But I was hoping they would ask us." Brad then added, "I figured if they wanted us back they'd ask and if not, we'd get to sit and watch somebody else go through it."

"Last time, it was pretty late notice when we got word we were doing it," Brad recalled. "So we didn't necessarily prepare the same way then as we will this time. This time we have more advance time."

On what they are preparing for the gig, Carrie said, "October we'll start going through things, figure out dates." Brad explained further, "But you get the script and read through it. Re-writes happen, you contribute things, they contribute things. You're doing that all the way up to about 10 minutes before - and then you go on!"

The 43rd Annual Country Music Association Awards will be aired live from Nashville on November 11 on ABC. Its musical guests, presenters and nominees are expected to be announced sometime soon.
