Ace Hood drops a new record called “4 A Minute”.


While the CMA, ACM and ACC Awards try various country stars’ hands at TV hosting duties, the CMT Music Awards tend to have Hollywood going country for a night. Following in the stilettoed footsteps of actresses including Kristen Bell, Kathy Najimi and Pamela Anderson will this year be Dancing With the Stars and Fox NFL Sunday broadcaster Erin Andrews and Pitch Perfect star Brittany Snow, who will co-host the June 10th awards, live from Nashville.

Andrews is no stranger to the country scene; she presented at the 2011 CMA Awards, helped announce last year’s ACM Awards nominees and was a special guest at Blake Shelton’s annual fan club party in 2010. The renowned sportscaster just wrapped her third season co-hosting Dancing With the Stars – a gig she scored after placing third as a contestant on the show’s 10th season. And she’ll return to Fox in the fall for her NFL Sunday sideline reports.

“Being a huge fan of country music, the CMT Music Awards are one of my favorite events of the season,” the Maine native writes in a statement.

Snow stars in the current Number One movie at the box office (which also boasts a chart-topping soundtrack), Pitch Perfect 2, alongside Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Hailee Steinfeld. Other projects on her acting resume include an award-winning run on Guiding Light, 2007′s film adaptation of the Broadway musical, Hairspray and the current William H. Macy-led film, Dial a Prayer.

“I’m thrilled to join Erin in hosting what’s sure to be one of the most memorable musical nights of the year,” says the 29-year-old actress.

Carrie Underwood leads the 2015 CMT nominees with five nods and will perform on the show — her first live televised performance since giving birth to her first child in March. She’s followed in nominations by Lady Antebellum and Kenny Chesney, who each have four nods and will perform, as well. Others to take the CMT stage include Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban and Florida Georgia Line. All categories are fan-voting, with the ballet open though June 7th.

The 2015 CMT Music Awards air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on June 10th at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT. Music
