          "I am thrilled to host the iHeartRadio Country Music Festival and celebrate our beautiful country community of music and musicians," said Nettles.  "I'm excited to share the stage with some of the biggest names in country music. It's going to be a wonderful night in the great town of Austin and I look forward to being a part of it."
 
          "Growing up in South Carolina, I would lay in bed at night listening to all kinds of music and commentary from deejays on the air. It actually led me to go into sports broadcasting in college, so I have always wanted an opportunity to try my skills at being one of those commentators. I can't think of a better opportunity to talk directly to the fans -- and bring them some great music -- than co-hosting this fantastic night with some really awesome friends," said Rucker.
