Most recently known as host and handyman on TLC’s home makeover series, While You Were Out, from 2002 to 2006, Farmer says, “Hosting Top 20 Countdown is a dream job for me. I get to interview inspiring people, surround myself with great music and stay close to my family here in Nashville. CMT already feels like home.” Farmer first gained attention in 1998 as a cast member of MTV’s made-for-TV movie and series, 2GE+HER, a spoof that chronicled a fictional boy band’s rise to fame.
