Ron White to host CMT's artist of year special
NASHVILLE (AP) - Comedian Ron White will host CMT's celebration of 2013's top country music stars, making this year's show something of a boys club.
"CMT Artists of the Year" honoring Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Hunter Hayes and Tim McGraw airs live for the first time this year.
John Hamlin, a senior vice president at CMT, says in a Tuesday news release the network is taking "a bit of a risk" signing on White, who's known for off-color comments.
The fourth annual artist of the year show will be held Dec. 3 in Nashville and will feature performances by and for the night's honorees.
