“Carrie and Brad are the consummate hosts,” Ed Hardy, who heads the CMA’s board of directors, said in a news release. “They have the respect of our industry, artistic credibility, critical acclaim and a quick-witted, genuine rapport that makes them popular with our audience and the viewers at home. We are delighted to have them back as hosts for the sixth year.”
