Sportscaster Erin Andrews and football superstar J.J. Watt are coming together to host the 2016 CMT Music Awards!
This marks Watt’s first time as host, while Andrews’ returns for a second consecutive year after keeping the audience laughing and the artists on their toes.
“I’m thrilled to come back to Nashville to co-host the CMT Music Awards,” said Andrews. “I had so much fun last year, and I can’t wait to see what antics J.J. and I will get into together. Plus, there’s nothing better than seeing my favorite country artists get recognized for their great work.”
“Having presented at the CMT Awards last year, I got a first-hand look at the energy and excitement of the event and I am very excited to be involved in a much larger capacity this year as co-host,” said Watt. “There are two things that I know about the people of Nashville…they love country music and they know how to throw a party. When you put those two things together, it makes for one heck of a night. I can’t wait to host the awards with Erin and be part of such a great night, honoring the biggest stars in country music.”
The 2016 CMT Music Awards airs on Wednesday, June 8th from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena at 8/7c on CMT. Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean and Thomas Rhett are confirmed to perform during the telecast.
