It's time for the much-anticipated annual CMT Awards, held tomorrow night on Country Music Television. But even those who don't know much about country -- or think the whole thing is little more than a red state conspiracy -- are likely raising eyebrows at this year's choice for a co-host, the excruciatingly adorable Kristen Bell.
Known mainly for her show Veronica Mars and freaking out about sloths, Bell has absolutely zero country cred that we can determine. (Toby Keith is the other host.) But she's actually not the least-qualified person we can think of. In fact, below are five folks who would be waaaayyyyy worse.5. Chaz Bono
Born as Cher and Sonny Bono's daughter, Chaz later changed her gender, and sashayed his way into America's hearts on Dancing With the Stars last year. But despite his dance-floor chops -- and his pop band Ceremony's hit "Could've Been Love" -- country music is pretty far out of his jurisdiction. And Nashville doesn't seem quite ready for a transgender star.
