Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley have been co-hosting the CMA Awards since 2008, so it's only right that they stick around for this year's 50th-anniversary show. The duo of country superstars will return as hosts when the show goes live Nov. 2 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

The 2016 ceremony will mark their ninth straight hosting gig.
