LeAnn Rimes hosting Nashville Star 3.
LeAnn Rimes will host USA’s Nashville Star 3 when it airs next year, replacing Nancy O’Dell. In a press release, a USA Network VP frames O’Dell’s firing in a Olympic way: “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. LeAnn embodies the vitality of country music. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have her on board.” LeAnn has already started to earn her paycheck, and tries to make nice with Nancy: “Nashville Star is great TV - it has drama, humor, sadness, fun and great music. I am really excited to host the show and of course, I have big shoes to fill with Nancy’s departure.”
