Trace Adkins and Kristin Chenoweth will return as hosts of the third annual American Country Awards, airing from Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay this December on FOX. Nominations will be announced soon.
The American Country Awards gives fans the opportunity to vote for their favorite artists in traditional awards categories as well as other areas including touring.
“The ACAs honor the best and brightest of country music, from the hotshot breakthrough artists to the icons,” said Adkins. “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. “We had a blast last year and I plan to pull out all the stops to make sure everyone has a good time!”
American Country Awards is executive-produced by Bob Bain (Teen Choice 2012, Kids’ Choice Awards). Paul Flattery, Tisha Fein and Fletcher Foster serve as producers; and Greg Sills is supervising producer. Michael Dempsey will direct the special.
