Carrie Underwood to appear in Brad Paisley’s variety special


Carrie Underwood is set to take the stage alongside her longtime CMA Awards co-host Brad Paisley again for the country star’s forthcoming TV variety special.

The Jesus Take the Wheel singer has co-hosted the prizegiving with Paisley for 11 years, but he won’t be back for November’s show and instead, Carrie will be joined by Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton.

But she will be a part of her pal’s Brad Paisley Thinks He’s Special, which was shot at Nashville’s War Memorial Auditorium in Tennessee.

The event will showcase Paisley’s “signature humor, unexpected surprises, heartfelt field pieces, and rousing musical performances”, according to a press release.

Other guests will include Kelsea Ballerini, Hootie & the Blowfish, the Jonas Brothers, and Tim McGraw.
