Kid Rock Repeat

(Gibson) Kid Rock has revealed that he'll be hosting the CMT Awards for the second year in a row. The "Born Free" singer will emcee the awards show in Nashville on June 8.

"Hosting the CMT Awards was a wonderful bridge to a great afterparty," he told Us Weekly. "I'm looking forward to crossing that bridge again this year."

After coming up in Detroit's hip-hop scene, Kid Rock became a rock-rap star, then embraced the "heartland rock" of his hero Bob Seger, and now has been welcomed into the country music community. In addition to hosting last year's CMT Awards, he's performed at other country music awards shows and television specials. Rock is up for an award at this year's show; he's nominated for Collaborative Video of the Year for "Collide." more on this story
