Brad Paisley Promises He'll Be Puttin' on the Ritz for the 50th CMAs

Time Inc.Brad Paisley may be wearing a simple navy shirt and jeans on the cover of the September issue of Southern Living, alongside his CMA co-host Carrie Underwood, who’s clad in a glamorous shoulderless olive dress with a metallic belt. But when it comes time for the half-century anniversary of country music’s biggest awards show in November, he promises to amp up his fashion game.

“It’s a big deal, 50 years. This is the year to show some class. I will be wearing a tuxedo,” Brad offers.

“Woo-ooo! Finally, he’ll step it up and match me a little more!” Carrie adds gleefully.

You can catch more of the comic give-and-take from the eight-time hosts in the new edition of Southern Living, which is available now. The 50th CMA Awards air November 2 on ABC.
