Summer is just about to come to an end, which means fall television premiere season is waiting in the wings, and not too far off is my favorite time of year - awards season. The red carpets, the fashion, the drama, the all gets me. The American Country Awards is one of my favorites and they have just announced that Trace Adkins and Kristin Chenoweth will return to host the show.

The 2012 American Country Award will air December 17th at 7 PM central time on FOX.
