CMA Awards Tackle Politics

As the Country Music Association (CMA) celebrates a half-century of its signature awards show tomorrow night, host Brad Paisley promises he won’t shy away from tackling the highly-charged presidential race nearing its own finale next week.

“I don’t know how you ignore [it],” Paisley told reporters recently. “I mean, you know, we won’t take a side in this.”

“I think we do a really good job of keeping things equal…” co-host Carrie Underwood chimed in.
