Stone Cold presents CMT Award
"Stone Cold" Steve Austin was a presenter at the 2007 CMT Music Awards in Nashville, Tenn., last night. He and Grammy Award-winning singer Gretchen Wilson presented the Male Video of the Year award.
"Since this award is all about the strong, solid men of country music, they wanted the toughest person in the room to give the award away," Stone Cold said to a cheering audience at The Curb Event Center at Belmont University.
"Yes, and we're all glad you could come along, too, Steve," Wilson joked to a smiling Stone Cold.
They presented the buckle award to Kenny Chesney for "You Save Me." The annual CMT Music Awards are country music's only fan-voted awards and air on the Country Music Television network. Comedian Jeff Foxworthy hosted.
Stone Cold's appearance is just one of many for the busy WWE Superstar, who is traveling around the country promoting WWE Films' action/thriller The Condemned, which hits theaters nationwide April 27. This weekend he was the Grand Marshall at NASCAR Nextel Cup's Samsung 500 in Fort Worth, Texas. Tomorrow, he'll be a special guest at the San Francisco Giants game at AT&T Park, where he'll take batting practice and meet several of the team's players.
