kristin chenoweth trace adkins american country awards getty Kristin Chenoweth joins American County Awards 2011 as Trace Adkins' co hostWe challenge you to find an odder juxtaposition of human beings than pint-sized Broadway darling Kristin Chenoweth and colossal country crooner Trace Adkins.

But FOX must have faith in their chemistry, because the network announced the two will host this year’s American Country Awards, the second outing for its entry in the growing stable of country music kudo-fests.

Taking place Monday, Dec 5, in Las Vegas, the sophomore ACAs will air live at 8:00 p.m. ET, with a delayed broadcast at the same time for West Coast audiences.

Adkins reprises his duties, having hosted the inaugural outing in 2010, which gave country fans the opportunity to vote for their favorite artists — as well as previously unrecognized categories honoring music videos and concert tours.

The 2010 ACAs saw Carrie Underwood walk home with the night’s biggest honors, including artist and album of the year.
