    14. They still get a little ~starstruck~ every now and then.

    13. If this whole singing and hosting thing doesn't work out, Carrie definitely has a future as a comedy roaster.

    To be fair, he rocks the hell out of it.

    9. Country music prides itself on being family-friendly, but Brad and Carrie can still get a little saucy now and then.

    8. Like that time Brad had to explain "motor-boating."

    7. Or that time Brad started sexting on stage.

    6. And who could forget that twerking incident?

    5. As if hosting wasn't hard enough, they've also done double-duty as performers.

    4. Their monologue jokes don't start feuds, they end them.

    Not every hosting duo can say that.

    3. Every year they rewrite and ~countrify~ your favorite pop songs.

    Tina Fey and Amy Poehler can't say that either.

    2. They just really know how to make a meme their own, you know?
