Everyone who tuned into the Country Music Awards last Wednesday night was the first to learn what the sex of Carrie Underwood’s baby is. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood kept the crowd rumbling with laughter as they hosted their 7th straight CMA awards.

Screen Shot 2014-11-11 at 11.33.20 AMThe roast-like jokes started as they came out on the stage to introduce the show. They started with a song they wrote in honor of George Strait and his “Cowboy Rides Away” tour. They then presumed to make fun of Strait when Paisley said, “usually when a cowboy rides away, he goes somewhere.” Then after a couple different jokes made towards Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift and democrats it was time set the stage for the baby sex reveal. The picture shown was Underwood’s immediate reaction after #bradblewit.

Brad started by making the comment “We’re pregnant!” (Which by the way, OMG she is a beautiful pregnant lady!) Then from there Underwood starts making comments asking why he said “we”. And from there Paisley is persistent that he will always be a part of the baby’s life and Underwood can’t keep the baby from him! From there he starts to beg Underwood to tell him what the sex of the baby is and finally she lets in and whispers in his ear what it is. He turns to the audience then and says “I’m so happy, I know something ya’ll don’t know; Suck it TMZ!”

Then a couple minutes later as they’re starting to introduce Garth Brooks’s return to the CMA stage, Paisley lets the cat out of the bag (or better yet, the bun out of the oven). Carrie starts by asking, “Do you think he’ll sign my baby?” And then Paisley replies by announcing,

“Hey, we could name him Garth!”

In which then Underwood acts like she’s angry at Paisley for the public revelation but it’s all apart of the show. The crowd then realizes what just happened and they all start cheering and smiling in happiness for Underwood’s joy.

Paisley’s Tweet after he revealed the sex

Let me be the first to say, it’s been a beautiful thing to watch Carrie Underwood’s whole celebrity life play out in front of our eyes. We fell in love with her on American Idol and we’ve followed her journey ever since and I believe I speak for the majority when I say we are overjoyed to see her finally play the role as a mother. Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Fisher!!

    I have to say that the hosts at an awards show can definitely make or break a show. I couldn’t be happier with Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood’s job as hosts at the Country Music Awards. They never disappoint with their performance as entertainers for the show. I love how they used the gender of Underwood’s baby as material to keep the audience active in the shows proceedings. It was very interactive and entertaining the whole time. Taking a step back, it is interesting to think that something as simple as the gender of a woman’s baby is exciting to so many people around the world like myself just because of her status as a celebrity. Congrats to her I only hope I look just as amazing pregnant.

  2. Holly, I recently saw this Buzzfeed article about the “22 Times that Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley Proved that They Should Host Every Awards Show,” which reminded me of this post you had written about the CMAs. I think it would be a bad idea if Carrie and Brad actually hosted every awards show because (a) it would distract them from their own careers as musicians and (b) they would be out of place giving awards for movies, Broadway plays, and Nobel accomplishments. That said, I do think you’re right that they have great chemistry — and how fortunate that Carrie was pregnant for the show so that she and Brad could make jokes about it!

    Wow, this blog post really showed me how out of touch I am with popular culture. I had no idea that Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley were married, let alone expecting child. This was a huge shock to me since I had watched Carrie Underwood perform her way to the #1 spot in American Idol. It is really amazing to see how an average Jane could not only break through into the music industry, but become one of the main figures of country music. I almost want to watch her American Idol performance just to blow my mind about how much she has changed. I am positive that she has plenty to thank God for every single day.

    Actually Brent I must not have been clear in my article. You’re not out of touch with popular culture I just probably assumed that many people in the class were as enveloped in Carrie and Brad’s life as I am. Carrie Underwood is married to a hockey player, not sure his name but I do know his last name is Fisher (and its his baby!) And Brad Paisley is married to Kimberly Williams-Paisley who is an actress. I know you would recognize her if you saw her, she’s on the TV shows According to Jim and also made some appearance on Nashville. Her and Brad are happily married with 2 children and she was actually shown many times on the night of the CMA’s, at one point with Brad telling her “how cute she was”.

    I have to say, I love Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood hosting the show. They make me laugh every year with their songs and jokes. I hope they keep hosting. But anyways, I was waiting for a while to hear about Carrie Underwood’s baby. By the way, I agree that she is beautiful as a pregnant woman. If you have seen her video for “Something in the Water”, you can see her bump and how she is glowing. Absolutely gorgeous! Anyways, I think the way that they revealed the gender was perfect. Paisley definitely made it interesting. Now to wait for little baby Fisher!

    Holly, I really enjoyed this fun blog post! I love Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood and saw their chemistry in the music video to their song “Remind Me.” They are so cute and playful and although I did not get to sit and watch this past Country Music Awards, I did see a few clips from them. Also, I agree that pregnancy looks great on Carrie, but it is no surprise in my opinion. I also liked how you included a screen shot of Brad’s tweet. I love when celebrities are playful, it makes them seem so down to earth.

    Holly, this post is great! I think Brad Paisley is so much fun. He seems like a cool dude that you would wanna go grab a beer with. I thoroughly enjoy his music and his comedic personality. When I first heard about Brad Paisley i didnt think much of him but now i can see why he is such a big deal. Hes fun and would make for a good judge on American idol and besides all that he is just a good musician and if there is anything that i can appreciate its good music. Thank you for shedding some light on the “sunny side” (get it?) of Brad. It was cool to see him in a different light.
