Trace Adkins Hosts American Country Awards
Trace Adkins is set to be the host of the first annual American Country Awards tonight, Dec. 6.
After spending this weekend rehearsing for the hosting gig, Trace jokes to a Chicago radio station, "Like I'm gonna really say what's on the teleprompter, anyway. We already had some conference calls and going through the script and I'm like, 'That's not funny.' I don't know why other people don't tell them [that some jokes don't work]. If you are the host, you can say 'That ain't funny.' Come on, you need to try a little harder."
Although the awards show takes place in Vegas, Trace claims that "it's funny how when I quit drinking, I quit gambling, too."
To see if Trace Adkins follows the teleprompter, tune into The American Country Awards at 8:00 p.m. tonight on Fox.
