Kristen Wants to Ring Country Music's Bell

Kristen Bell will host the 2014 CMT Music Awards in Nashville alone this year. 

MTV’s Maurice Bobb describes the upcoming event in the article “Kristen Bell Takes Us Behind The 2014 CMT Music Awards ‘House Party’.” 

Taking a break from the preproduction items, like shooting promos for the award show, the actress is starting to feel the excitement about "the amount of cool surprise guests and acts" CMT has in store for the audience.

Previously Bell hosted with Toby Keith in 2012 and last year with Jason Aldean. Is she nervous without a co-host? Not really. "It’s also far from the hardest job in the world cause I have a teleprompter and wonderful writers behind the show."

She calls the award show "a big party with a lot of friend and a lot of love." Complimenting the genre she proclaims the music is "very much about the fans and that's kind of how this show feels.” Continuing, the "Frozen" actress adds the show's production is run so well that "it’s so fun and fan-oriented that I think there’s kinda no way that we can go wrong."

This is CMT's final weekend to vote for favorite acts online with the voting ending June 1. Miranda Lambert leads with six nominations while Florida Georgia Line (FGL) and Bryan each have five nods. Surprisingly, Taylor Swift and Urban only earned four noms each.

The event will be held in Bridgestone Arena with performances by Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, and many others. Bell enjoys the music's "storytelling aspect" because the conversational tone adds an "extra layer of humanity" to what is being discussed.

The show will air live on Wednesday, June 4 at 8 p.m. ET. The channel will be CMT, of course.

CMT’s staff mentions that Kristen Bell currently stars on Showtime's "House of Lies" as Jeannie Van Deer Hooven and earlier this year, she reprised the titular character in “Veronica Mars.” “Mars” made Kickstarter history through crowd funding the movie, and later earning a limited distribution through a major studio.

Her most recent role was as Anna in "Frozen," which is the highest grossing Disney animated film in history. Playbill journalist Michael Gioia notes that the animated film has grossed 1.219 billion globally, topping “Iron Man 3”’s 1.215 billion.

"Frozen" Surpasses "Iron Man 3" Globally; Film Finds Major Success in Japan” reports that for the 11th straight week, Walt Disney Animation Studio’s 53rd film remains number one in Japan. 

Will Idina Menzel appear on the show, since she played Anna’s sister Elsa in “Frozen”? No one knows but with Bell leading the fan wagon, who knows.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
