Kid Rock Announced as Host for 2011 CMT Music Awards.
Kid Rock will be reprising his role of host for the 2011 CMT Music Awards. Apparently, CMT thinks they’ve got a sure thing going on as Kid Rock was last year’s host as well. Word on the street has it that Kid Rock had a pretty good time himself, and will be enjoying his second turn on the CMT stage.
“Hosting the CMT awards was a wonderful bridge to a great after party. I’m looking forward to crossing that bridge again this year.” -Kid Rock
While he may be excited about hosting the show, fan reactions have been mixed with some truly excited, and others ready to make alternative plans for the evening. I guess we will see how the fan turn-out pans out, and whether or not the country superstar line-up for the evening, including performances by Jason Aldean, Sugarland, Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum, Kieth Urban and more, will be enough to overshadow some fans’ distaste for Kid Rock!
In addition to his hosting duties, Kid Rock has also been nominated in the collaborative video of the year category for his single “Collide” with Sheryl Crow.
Tickets to the 2011 CMT Music Awards go on sale this Saturday, May 21st. The show will air live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on CMT and cmt.com on Wednesday, June 8th.
