Kid Rock Returning to Host CMT Music Awards

Kid Rock will return as the host of the CMT Music Awards on June 8 in Nashville. He hosted the event for the first time in 2010. “Hosting the CMT awards was a wonderful bridge to a great after party,” he told Us Weekly. “I’m looking forward to crossing that bridge again this year.” In addition to hosting duties, Kid Rock is nominated with Sheryl Crow in the collaborative video of the year category for “Collide.” Tickets to the 2011 CMT Music Awards go on sale Saturday (May 21) at all Ticketmaster outlets and the Bridgestone Arena box office in downtown Nashville. The show will air live from the arena on CMT and CMT.com. As previously reported, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts and Sugarland will perform at the event.
