Jason Aldean and actress Kristen Bell are teaming up to co-host the 2013 CMT Music Awards, set to be telecast live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena June 5 at 8 p.m. (ET) on CMT and streamed on CMT.com. The two stars announced their involvement via Twitter on Thursday, with each wearing a T-shirt in support of the other.

She is currently starring in the Showtime series, “House of Lies,” and this summer she starts shooting the Warner Brothers film “Veronica Mars,” reprieving the title role from the series. She starred in and co-produced the comedy “Hit & Run,” and is also lending her voice to the new Disney animated feature, “Frozen.” Additionally, Bell plays the lead role in the independent film “Lifeguard,” opening this summer. Her other film credits include “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “When in Rome,” “Couples Retreat,” “Movie 43,” “Some Girls," “You Again” and “Burlesque.” Her other television credits include “Deadwood,” “Heroes” and “Party Down,” while her Broadway credits include “Tom Sawyer” and “The Crucible.”
Aldean is an 11-time CMT Award nominee, and has been a CMT Artist of the Year honoree for the last three years.
Nominations for the 12th annual show will be announced May 6. Performers and presenters will be named in the coming weeks. Tickets for the show go on sale May 11 at 11 a.m. ET/10 a.m. CT at all Ticketmaster outlets and the Bridgestone Arena box office.
He puts on a good concert, I can tell you that.
I didnt really want to go, but did I have a good time!!!
This guy can sing
I can't stand Jason Aldean !!! I wish you wouldn't call it Country Music Awards, because it surely isn't country. Just a loud mess of nothing.
Yea' they were having trouble before he got caught kissing that girl, but all their trouble was his ego, he's not as good as he thinks he is and he is ugly as a mud fence, wat up wit dat....
I agree nobody writing on this page is perfect. Jason and his wife were having lots of issues
before the kiss. And, yeah, a kiss. He should be stoned. His work warrants him the right to
be a host. Get off your high horses.
Cheated on his wife/high school sweetheart, who stood by him during the lean years, he is scum.
I hope country fans and country radio give him the same treatment that they gave that girl band that dissed President Bush. I hope his career goes into the toilet.
