Jason Aldean Confirms His First Awards Show Hosting Gig

by Vanessa Ryan

Jason Aldean is gonna host his first awards show!  He confirmed on Twitter yesterday (5/2), that he'll join already announced host Kristen Bell for the 2013 CMT MUSIC AWARDS coming up June 5th.  Kristen hosted the awards last year with Toby Keith and says she's excited to be asked back.

I'm assuming Jason is excited too, since he posted the above picture of himself in a Veronica Mars shirt in tribute to Kristen who starred on the TV show from 2004 to 2007. Kristen reciprocated by posting a picture of herself in an Aldean shirt.

Nominations for the 12th annual show will be announced Monday, May 6 and performers and presenters for country music’s first fan-voted awards show will be announced soon. Tickets for the show will go on sale Saturday, May 11 at 10am CST at all Ticketmaster outlets and the Bridgestone Arena Box Office.

The awards show will air on CMT at 7pm CST and on CMT.com.
