There’s good news today for tween girls and those with an “Achy, Breaky Heart.”
“Hannah Montana” star and teen singing sensation Miley Cyrus and her dad, actor/country recording artist Billy Ray Cyrus, will be the hosts for the 2008 CMT Music Awards, the show’s organizers announced today.
The father-daughter duo also will perform during the awards show, which CMT will air live April 14 from The Curb Event Center at Belmont University in Nashville.
“Miley and I are so excited to be hosting the CMT Music Awards,” Billy Ray Cyrus said in a news release. “We know it will be a fun-filled night with a lot of great music performances.”
The CMT Awards are fan-voted, and voting continues on CMT.com.
The network announced (and BAM’s Blog reported) last week that Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Sugarland, Taylor Swift and Toby Keith also will perform at the show. Other performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
The news release noted that Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus are set to start production this spring in Nashville on “The Hannah Montana Movie.” Then, they will begin taping the third season of the wildly popular Disney TV series.
