Country star Trace Adkins and actress Kristin Chenoweth will host the second American Country Awards.

The show will air live from Las Vegas on Dec. 5 and broadcast on Fox television.

Adkins also hosted the awards show last year. He thought it would be a challenge, and he was right. The singer said his nerves didn't allow him to enjoy it until about an hour into the show.

He said he'll try not to be as self-conscious and nervous this time around.
