Kristin Chenoweth and Trace Adkins to co-host American Country Awards for second time in December
Emmy and Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth, who hails from Broken Arrow, and multiplatinum recording artist Trace Adkins will return as co-hosts of the third annual American Country Awards, airing from Las Vegas this December on Fox. The awards show will take place at Mandalay Bay. Nominations will be announced soon, the network announced today.
“The ACAs honor the best and brightest of country music, from the hotshot breakthrough artists to the icons,” said Adkins in the news release. “I’m looking forward to cutting loose again with Kristin, who’s quite the firecracker comedienne, while we also take viewers through an evening of great music and awards.”
“I’m excited to return to the ACA stage with Trace and his big personality and even bigger boots,” said Chenoweth in the release. “We had a blast last year and I plan to pull out all the stops to make sure everyone has a good time!”
The American Country Awards are billed as the “only country music awards show that gives fans the opportunity to vote for their favorite artists not only in traditional categories but also in previously unrecognized areas of the business such as touring, encompassing the entire spectrum of country music and bestowing honors that no other awards show has.”
The second annual American Country Awards featured performances by Oklahoma-connected superstars Toby Keith, Thompson Square, Pistol Annies and Blake Shelton as well as Alabama, Eli Young Band, The Band Perry and Chris Young, as well as by co-hosts Adkins and Chenoweth. The special also featured appearances by Tulsa comic Rodney Carrington, Tishomingo resident Miranda Lambert, Lauren Alaina, Kyle Busch, Bill Engvall, Hunter Hayes, the JaneDear Girls, Jamie Little, Love & Theft, Larry Mahan, Scotty McCreery, Brad Paisley, Jordin Sparks, The Big Show, Josh Turner, Storme Warren and the men of “Pawn Stars” (Corey Harrison, Richard Harrison, Rick Harrison and Austin Russell).
With his trademark baritone and wry sense of humor, Trace Adkins is one of country music’s most accomplished entertainers. With total sales surpassing 10 million albums, a long list of hit singles and platinum albums, he is also a television personality, actor and author. His hits include “Just Fishin’” “Every Light in the House,” “(This Ain’t) No Thinkin’ Thing,” “You’re Gonna Miss This,” “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” and “All I Ask For Anymore.” A Grammy Award nominee and member of the Grand Ole Opry, Adkins is currently on the road with his “Songs & Stories Tour” in support of his 10th studio album, “Proud To Be Here.” He also is the host of the cable television series, “Great American Heroes.” This will be Adkins’ third time hosting the American Country Awards.
