Check out their interview from the show and their after show Q&A below:

On November 5, it will be the duo’s seventh time hosting the CMAs together! And this year, Brad jokingly says he hopes it isn’t the year they ruin it!

Q: Any other CMA hopes?
Carrie: “No wardrobe malfunctions!” But Brad says otherwise!

Brad: “Actually that stuff would be fine, sure.” Really, Brad!? “It’s live TV. I like anything that makes the show better.”

Q: Any hosting rituals or traditions?
Brad: “I always send her flowers to say thanks.” Aww! 

Carrie: “I like to say a little prayer before we go on. Just for us to do well.”

Q: All professional talk aside: Mr. Paisley has a birthday coming up on October 28! Big plans? 
Brad: “We have meetings scheduled… What are you getting me [to Carrie]!? 

Carrie: “You will see… I’ve got a plan. It’s just a little something, not a big deal.”
