Kid Rock takes on the CMT Awards, Gloriana speak out about the awards controversy, Plus, Brad is hilarious as always in Tonight's Tweets

Wow- this will be interesting to say the least...Kid Rock is hosting the CMT Awards. He confirmed it today saying, "The rumors are true – I'm hosting the CMT Awards live from Nashville on June 9th. All I can promise is I will be awesome." The CMT Awards are all fan voted so you can vote for your favorite nominees through May 3. Final nominees will be announced exclusively on Tuesday May 11 at 9 a.m. EST. The awards show airs June 9 at 8 p.m. EST on CMT.

Rascal Flatts will perform the national anthem at the Kentucky Derby in Louisville tomorrow.

Tom Gossin and Cheyenne Kimball of Gloriana visited the Crook & Chase studios in Nashville, Tenn., to speak for the first time about the recent controversy surrounding Tom's postings on Twitter following Luke Bryan's win at the ACM awards. Tom expressed his surprise that the meaning of his fan tweets got twisted out of context with such hurtful consequences, and why he is eager to face the situation head-on and let fans know what is really in his heart. So here's what Tom said, "I just remarked (to twitter fans upset that they didn't vote enough for them) that we were up against a great guy who's had a couple more years to gain momentum so we were up against somebody who was farther along a bigger artist, so it's not your (their fans) fault." Tom remarked that his tweet somehow morphed into a criticism of Luke on another blog, which wasn't what he intended. He added, "I was the first one to congratulate him backstage...and I called him about this and we're cool about all this with him." Cheyenne remarked she wouldn't have dissed Luke, "Because I think he's so hot! I told the band if we lose to Luke I'm happy!" Check out the video at

No doubt about it, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood are beautiful. People magazine agrees and they are both on People 2010 list of the most beautiful people in the world.

Alan Jackson is contributing profits from his May 22 show at the Charleston Civic Center to a mining disaster fund overseen by the West Virginia Council of Churches. Twenty-nine miners died earlier this month in the worst mining disaster the U.S. has experienced in four decades.
