Kristen Bell Will Host 2014 CMT Music Awards

This Will Be Her First Time Hosting Solo

With two years of hosting experience under her belt, actress Kristen Bell will return to host the 2014 CMT Music Awards. The fan-voted show will air live on June 4 at 8 p.m. ET.

Bell previously co-hosted with Jason Aldean in 2013 and Toby Keith in 2012, but this year she will host solo.

"After two years of duets with amazing partners, I'm really excited for my first solo effort," Bell said. "I love that the country community has welcomed me so warmly, and I can't wait to head back to Nashville for what's sure to be another amazing show this year."

Broadcast from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, the 2014 CMT Music Awards will include performances by Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan and Miranda Lambert, with more performances to be announced soon.

Fans can vote online at and on their mobile device at CMT Mobile through June 1 to determine the winners. The six finalists for video of the year will be announced on the morning of June 4, and fans can then vote at, CMT mobile and via text message throughout the live telecast (ET/CT only) to determine the night's big winner.

Bell currently stars as Jeannie Van Der Hooven in the third season of the Showtime series, House of Lies. Earlier this year, she reprised the title role in the Warner Bros film Veronica Mars, and she also lent her voice to the acclaimed new Disney animated feature, Frozen. Additional film credits include Hit & Run and Lifeguard, as well as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, When in Rome and Couples Retreat.
