Keith Urban, Kellie Pickler + More Announced as 2013 CMT Music Awards Presenters
The 2013 CMT Music Awards are around the corner, and that means lots of exciting announcements regarding the evening coming in -- and fast. The first presenters have just been revealed, and it's a star-studded bunch which includes Keith Urban and Kellie Pickler.
'Nashville' star Charles Esten, Duane ("Dog") and Beth Chapman, duo Florida Georgia Line, Kevin and Michael Bacon of the Bacon Brothers, CMT’s 'Bounty Hunters' co-star Larry the Cable Guy, Lisa Marie Presley and Scotty McCreery have also jumped in line to present awards.
Pickler, who recently was crowned 'Dancing With the Stars' champion, was also one of last year's presenters, along with other country favorites Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Alan Jackson, among others. Maybe when the 'Someone Somewhere Tonight' singer takes the podium, she'll show off a little of her freestyle dancing, which earned rave reviews from judges during the competition.
Along with presenting, Urban will take the stage as one of the evening's CMT Music Awards performers. He'll be a busy guy during the red carpet event, doing a 'little bit of everything' before heading back to the studio to continue work on his highly-anticipated new album.
Leading up to the show, Female Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year nominee Jana Kramer will host the 2013 CMT Music Awards Video of the Year Special, premiering Saturday, June 1 at 2PM ET. It'll be a must-see event, as the 'I Hope It Rains' singer will present the nominees for the coveted Video of the Year category.
The 2013 CMT Music Awards are the first country music awards show to let fans vote for their favorites, and as a result, is a much-loved event. With a slew of A-list presenters, performers, nominees and hosts, it's going to be one of the hottest country music events of the year. Don't miss your favorite acts on Wednesday, June 5 at 8PM ET.
