She's only a 'little nervous' about it — but a leap between racing cars (albeit successfully!) and hosting an awards ceremony in front of millions of people?? We'd be filling our pants!!
Here's what Danica Patrick said about hosting the American Country Awards this year:
"It's going to be a lot of fun. I'm a little nervous, though. I'm told it's going to be really easy, with no issues and no problems, but I just keep thinking, 'That can't be true.' But … we'll be ready!"
She'll be co-hosting with Trace Adkins, who is a long-time veteran of the hosting game at this point!
Some people aren't really sure as to why they've chosen Danica, as she's only, "really gotten into country music in the last year or so," but we just brush them off as haters!
Danica is charming and witty, and we can't wait to see what she has in store!
"I co-hosted The View a few years ago and then I've presented awards at the ESPYs every year. I've been asked to present awards at a lot of shows and I'd like to do more, but scheduling is tough because of how much we race. I'm excited though – this is a big next step."
We're glad you're cool with big steps!
This year's ACAs are gonna be a blast!!
Good luck, girl!
