Hank Jr and Ellen DeGeneres play Odd Couple at CMT Artists of the Year Awards

It's been interesting to see the flow of celebrities jumping on the country music bandwagaon lately. From Kid Rock and Julianna Hough to Robin Roberts and even President Obama. Now comes word that Ellen Degeneres is joining the party. She will play a part in the CMT Artists of the Year broadcast on Tuesday, December 13th. For most people, the highlights will be watching Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum receive their well deserved recognition. But for me, the best highlight would be a pairing of Ellen Degeneres with Hank Williams Jr. (who will also be participating in the awards) for a little comic sparring. With their strong senses of humor and even stronger political views, I can envision a Comedy Central style roast breaking out in the middle of the awards! Well, I can always dream, can't I?
