NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Kevin Costner will host CMT’s new celebration of country music’s artists of the year.
Costner is best known as an Academy Award winning actor and director, but he also fronts a country band, Modern West.
The five honorees make up a new wave of country artists and are among the genre’s top-selling acts.
CMT compared the sales, country radio airplay, concert grosses and activity on the network’s website to determine its artists of the year. CMT plans to make the show a yearly event.
