The CMA Awards are just around the corner. Gowns are being selected, suits are being pressed, guitars are being strung and the stage is being set. And Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are rehearsing for their role as the show’s hosts for the 10th time.

Since the very first time they took on hosting duties in 2009, Carrie and Brad have scored big laughs that have just about rocked the Richter scale. In a new Facebook Q&A video, they take a look back at some of them.

From the country superstars showing off big league dance moves to ”Gangnam Style” to the unveiling of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Barbies, this duo has tickled our funny bones.

“We are willing to make fun of ourselves and dance,” Carrie says. “We had a choreographer and everything.” Brad adds, “Yeah, that guy was Michael Jackson’s choreographer. He was legit. And he was frustrated, I think, working with me.”

Ah, you weren’t that bad, Brad! We’d nominate you for “Dancing With the Stars!”

Brad and Carrie also talk about the importance and value of being current with their opening monologue. And while Carrie says their best ever opening jokes will come this year, they don’t even give us the tiniest hint of what those jokes will be. We’ll just have to tune in to find out.

“The 51st Annual CMA Awards” broadcast live from Nashville Nov. 8 on ABC.
