It might not be a surprise that Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will host the 2018 CMA Awards -- their 11th year in a row helming the show -- but that doesn't mean country fans aren't excited about the duo taking the stage again.

Underwood and Paisley, both country stars and CMA winners themselves, will walk viewers through what many consider to be country's biggest night. The show will broadcast from the Bridgestone Arena in country music capital, Nashville. 

Hot country duos Dan + Shay and Sugarland will join Luke Bryan at his brand-new restaurant/bar in Nashville 32 Bridge Food + Drink to reveal the nominees for the awards show on August 28. 

The country music extravaganza will air Nov. 14 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
