Kristen Bell to Host 'CMT Music Awards' for Third Year in a Row

For the first time, however, the star of “Veronica Mars,” “House of Lies,” and “Frozen” won't have a co-host for the June 4 ceremony

Country music has really embraced Kristen Bell, and they're giving her a vote of confidence. For the past three years, Bell has acted as co-host for the “CMT Music Awards.” In 2012, she co-hosted with Toby Keith. Last year, it was Jason Aldean. Now, she's ready to fly solo.

“After two years of duets with amazing partners, I'm really excited for my first solo effort,” said Bell in a statement. “I love that the country community has welcomed me so warmly and I can't wait to head back to Nashville for what's sure to be another amazing show this year.”

The “Frozen” star, who also stars in “House of Lies” and recently reprised her cult role as “Veronica Mars” for the film, broke the news Tuesday morning via Twitter.

The 2014 “CMT Music Awards” will feature performances from Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, and Carrie Underwood, with more performers yet to be announced. The event takes place Wednesday, June 4 at 8 p.m. ET on CMT.
