Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will return to host the Country Music Association Awards this November, marking their fifth time at the helm.

Underwood started the online buzz about their co-hosting return with a Tweet Wednesday.

"Hanging out with @bradpaisley today. Just caught him in my make up chair. #suchadiva," Underwood said on her Twitter page.

CMA later confirmed the news on Twitter and Facebook with a picture of the two stars during a photo shoot.

The 46th Annual CMA Awards will air live from Nashville on Thursday, Nov. 1, on ABC7.
