October 27, 2004
USA NETWORK has tapped Country star LEANN RIMES to host the upcoming third season of NASHVILLE STAR. RIMES has been a longtime fan and supporter of the series as she performed on the second season finale in MAY. She will be succeeding ACCESS HOLLYWOOD's NANCY O'DELL, who hosted the show for the first two seasons.
"As we move forward into the third season of NASHVILLE STAR, NANCY O'DELL will pass the hosting torch to LEANN, who will lend a unique artist's perspective to the show," said USA NETWORK VP/Alternative Series & Specials LIBBY HANSEN. "LEANN embodies the vitality of Country music. We couldn't be more thrilled to have her on board."
