The hosts for the 2013 CMT Music Awards were announced on Twitter Thursday (May 2). The announcement was made by the hosts themselves, country singer Jason Aldean and actress Kristen Bell. Bell had already said she would be hosting on April 29, but kept dropping hints about who would be joining her.
The co-host was revealed when Bell and Aldean both tweeted selfies, Bell wearing an Aldean shirt and Aldean wearing one from “Veronica Mars.” Bell’s tweet said the show will “be a blast,” while Aldean said he had to get back to watching “Veronica Mars.”
The announcement comes not long after Aldean moved to end his marriage, after a cheating scandal involving former “American Idol” contestant Brittany Kerr. Bell recently gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Lincoln.
Nominations for the awards show will be announced Monday (May 6), with news on performers and presenters still to come. The 2013 CMT Music Awards will broadcast live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. on June 5.
