This Saturday, CMT will reveal their picks for Artist of the Year, but the star-studded night will include performances from THE BIGGEST stars in Country Music. Any one of them could easily earn the honor. Rascal Flatts and Hayden Panettiere will be hosting the event which was taped last night in Nashville.
Rascal Flatts is the best-selling country vocal group of the past decade and the #1 debut of their new release, Changed, earned them the distinction of being one of only four acts to have seven consecutive studio albums debut in the top spot on the Billboard Country Albums chart during the Soundscan era.
In the 12 years Rascal Flatts have been together they have sold over 21 million albums, 25 million digital downloads and delivered 14 #1 singles to the top of the charts. They are most awarded Country group of the past decade, earning over 40 trophies from the ACAs, ACMs, AMAs, CMAs, People’s Choice Awards and more. Will the Flatts hosting gig on CMT’s Artist of the Year special turn into another honor??

Apart from the world of acting, Panettiere is also an animal rights activist. Country music fans most know her as the country vixen Juliette Barnes in the new drama series “Nashville.”
