NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are hosting the Country Music Association Awards for a fifth time.

Underwood started the online buzz about their return with a tweet Wednesday, saying she was hanging out with Paisley. She joked that she caught him in her makeup chair and added the hash tag (hash)suchadiva.

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

The CMA Awards will air live Thursday, Nov. 1, on ABC from Nashville.
