Danica Patrick is teaming up with country star Trace Adkins to host the American Country Awards in December, picking up where Kristin Chenoweth left off last year.
The show will be streamed live from Mandalay Bay in Vegas on December 10, and while Patrick doesn’t have much experience in hosting a big awards show, she has spent some time with some of the biggest names in the business, having appeared in videos for Miranda Lambert and Colt Ford.
Patrick is moving on after what she calls an “amicable” split from her husband of seven years, Paul Hospenthal. The NASCAR driver posted the news on her Facebook page that the two of them were divorcing last year.
“I am sad to inform my fans that after seven years, Paul and I have decided amicably end our marriage,” she said. “This isn’t easy for either of us, but mutually it has come to this. He has been an important person and friend in my life and that’s how we will remain moving forward.”
