Welcome to the world of country music Justin Timberlake!
Good Morning America announced Monday (Nov. 2) morning that the “Mirrors” singer will take the stage at the 2015 Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday (Nov. 4) and perform with ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’ nominee, Chris Stapleton.
How do co-hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood feel about the new addition? Well, Brad is certainly excited about having another person to target with his jokes.
When E! News‘ Carissa Loethen asked the co-host if there was anyone he had his eye on, Brad replied, “Sure! Let me think about that for a minute. I think Justin Timberlake is coming. How can I not pick on him?”
“I have to pick on him,” Brad continued. “He’s a great guy so if anybody can take it too, we always look for the people who are going to laugh.”
We can’t wait to see what Brad has in store for JT!
