Watt will be back at the CMT Awards in 2016, but he'll have a much more significant role. CMT announced Wednesday that Watt will co-host the award show June 8th with Erin Andrews.


"There are two things that I know about the people of Nashville: They love country music and they know how to throw a party," Watt said. "When you put those two things together, it makes for one heck of a night."

NASCAR's Danica Patrick will also be a part of the show as an award presenter.
