September 18, 2013


Sept. 18--Danica Patrick will soon have a strong presence at another competition that she won't be winning.

The NASCAR star will co-host the American Country Awards along with Trace Adkins on Dec. 10 in Las Vegas.

Adkins has hosted the show every year since it began in 2009. The show will air live on Fox.

Patrick has appeared in music videos with country music stars Miranda Lambert and Colt Ford.

"I'm so excited to host the American Country Awards with Trace Adkins," Patrick said in a statement. "I have no doubt he'll be able to keep up with me. I've become a huge fan of country music since I came to NASCAR. This is going to be a really cool experience and I'm excited to be a part of it. It's going to be a great show."
