Kevin Costner Hosts CMT Artists of the Year

If you’re a country music fan be sure to check out CMT tonight for a taped award show honoring the artists of the year.

CMT Artists of the Year

The show is on at 8pm EST tonight and features the five artists of the year as decided by CMT:

  • Jason Aldean
  • Taylor Swift
  • Lady Antebellum
  • Carrie Underwood
  • Zac Brown Band

The host for the festivities is movie star and country singer Kevin Costner. Known most for his career as an actor and director, Costner ventured into the music world just a few years ago. His band Modern West has been touring the world showing fans their breed of country and folk music.

It should be an interesting show with stars of music and film showing up to honor the five top country acts. All of the artist shave had huge years including millions of albums sold, scores of hit songs, and tons of concert tickets sold.

I’ll be checking out the show. I like country music and I like watching their performances on award shows. I’m looking forward to Jason Aldean performing My Kinda Party with Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry. It should be rocking.

I also haven’t seen Costner in a movie for a while. It seems like he’s doing just fine though.

Will you be watching the show tonight?
