Host Kevin Costner

Over the past three decades, actor, writer and Academy Award winning director Kevin Costner has become a true American film icon. From his breakthrough role in Silverado through career defining performances in The Untouchables, Bull Durham and Field of Dreams, Kevin has proven to be one of the most versatile and bankable leading men in Hollywood's history. He made his memorable directorial debut with the critically acclaimed classic Dances With Wolves, which he also produced and starred in. The film went on to win seven Academy Awards in 1991, including the coveted best picture and best director Oscars.

Costner's love of film is no secret. Less known but equally as passionate is his love of country music. And for the past three years, he and his band, Modern West, have introduced their sound to the world. In 2008, the band made the Billboard country charts with its debut album, Untold Truths. Their follow-up, Turn It On, was released in Europe last year.
