If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

The CMA is sticking with what works for the 2011 CMAs, tapping Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood to return for their fourth round of hosting the awards show.

In a statement announcing the decision, the association’s CEO, Steve Moore, said, “We couldn’t ask for better hosts than Carrie and Brad. They have the unique qualities of humor, talent, credibility and natural rapport that makes them a hit with the fans and the industry audience.”

“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,” Paisley chimed in. “It’s such an honor to be invited back. 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.”

The awards ceremony will air on ABC on Wednesday, November 9 at 8 p.m. ET.
