There's no seven-year itch between Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley – the duo are back to host the 48th annual CMA Awards, for their seventh time.

In preparation for their return to the Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 5, Underwood, 31, and Paisley, 41, tried their hands at a game of country music trivia courtesy of the show's reigning group of the year, Little Big Town. The prize? A collectors' edition set of Brad and Carrie bobblehead dolls!

Since 2008, the Nashville regulars have danced, sung and joked their way through the annual event honoring country music's biggest stars. (Remember when Paisley kissed Miss Piggy?)

And if the video above is any indication of what's ahead for November, the CMA Awards countdown officially – and happily – starts now.

Follow @peoplemag on Instagram today to see "Carrie" and "Brad's" adventures at PEOPLE.

The 48th Annual CMA Awards will air Nov. 5 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
