2012 CMT Artists of the Year Hosts Announced

Rascal Flatts and Hayden Panettiere Host 2012 CMT Artists of the Year

Country favorite Rascal Flatts and Nashville star Hayden Panettiere take the stage to host the 3rd annual CMT Artists of the Year Awards on December 8th. This 90-minute special features performances and special appearances from the country artists we loved the most during 2012.

Hayden isn’t just an actress on a TV show; she sings on the show and she’s good! She is excited to be a host this year, and we’re hoping she’ll sing a song or two.

“Nashville is my second home now. I am so happy to be embraced by the country community and to be included in such a big event, especially with Rascal Flatts. I can’t wait to see how the evening unfolds!” -Hayden Panettiere

We know the hosts, but we’ll have to wait until December 8th for the list of honorees. CMT has decided to keep the list a secret this year, so we’ll have to tune in to see who is part of the show!
