The CMA Awards are one week away (11/13) and host Carrie Underwood is talking about the many outfits viewers will be seeing of her and her iconic co-hosts Reba and Dolly Parton wearing.

Carrie told us, “I feel like we have our our fittings. And then it’s like, well, I have to wear that. Then I have to wear that one. And then we start asking how many times can we fit it in? And we look at the schedule and it’s like five minutes there and that’s enough time change. I can do that. But I would imagine there’s gonna be a lot of chaos with the clothing backstage, a lot of fringe. I’m predicting a lot of rhinestones.”

Underwood is up for a few awards including the coveted Entertainer of the Year, an award fellow country superstar Miranda Lambert would like to see her win. She’s not sure if she’ll take that home, but is grateful of her success just the same. She said, “I was really lucky early on to have success and then now, you know, you just you want people to still like what you’re doing. I personally see that every night when I’m on stage. I don’t take any of that for granted.”

As for her 11 year co-host Brad Paisley, who is not co-hosting with her this year, Carrie says, “Brad’s got a lot going on these days, he does have the [TV] special and I am a part of it, but you know, obviously we’ve had eleven great years together. He’s my work husband.”

The CMA Awards will air live on ABC on November 13th from Nashville.
