Fresh off his win on Dancing with the Stars, Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward is scheduled to make an appearance during the 2011 CMT Music Awards that will air live from Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville on June 8th at 8 p.m. ET on CMT and CMT.com. Ward is not the only NFL player scheduled to make an appearance as Packers linebacker Clay Matthews has also been added to the awards show.
The show will once again be hosted by Kid Rock and feature several live performances and music awards. Ward figures to be an award presenter and there is no word if he will wear the black cowboy hat and Texas size belt buckle that he was seen wearing when he arrived to Dallas on the team plane prior to the Super Bowl.
