Kristin Chenoweth has “chemistry” with Trace Adkins

Kristin Chenoweth chatted with SheKnows over the weekend about her co-hosting gig on Monday night’s American Country Awards. We love her, but we’re a little concerned about what she’s planning to give Luke Bryan.

It’s no fluke that Kristin Chenoweth is back to host the American Country Awards for a second time on Monday night. In fact, the Broadway star lobbied hard to get back on the show for one reason: Co-host Trace Adkins.

He’s so fun,” Chenoweth told SheKnows over the weekend. “We just have such a good time together. I don’t know why we have chemistry. We probably shouldn’t but we do. I just love him.”

The singers made a dynamic duo last year with their various stunts — and she hinted they’ll have even more surprises this year.

“People will be very disappointed if they don’t watch this show live because we have outdone ourselves, in my opinion,” she joked.

Yes, the Oklahoma native definitely has her country side — and it’s something she wants to expand on in the future. “I really want to do another country album,” she said. “I felt so proud of the first one. I don’t feel done with it. I had to cut so many songs, so there might be a part two.”

But, back to the present: Who will be the big winners come Monday night? Chenoweth has a few ideas.

“I could be wrong, but I think it’ll be [Jason] Aldean and I think Little Big Town,” she said. “They’re so kind, and for me that’s the most important thing.”

Current country heartthrob Luke Bryan also hits high on her list.

“He’s not ugly,” she joked.

And if he doesn’t take home the prize?

“He can take home my eyeballs just so I can stare at him the whole time.”

Great idea, Kristin.
