Celebrities From Nashville to Hollywood Fill In For Blair Garner Next Week
LOS ANGELES, February 8, 2012 -- When After MidNite host Blair Garner takes a well-deserved vacation next week, celebrities from Nashville to Hollywood will take turns guest hosting the show. Actress Melissa Peterman, who played "Barbara Jean" on Reba and hosts CMT's The Singing Bee; country music star Josh Turner; Chris Harrison, host of ABC's The Bachelor; Hunter Hayes, 2012 ACM "New Artist of the Year" nominee; and Kellie Pickler, who released her third album "100 Proof" last month; will be among the guest hosts hitting the airwaves throughout the week.
"After we finalized the roster of folks filling in, I got a little jealous I won't be here to hang out with them," said Garner. "When we threw this idea out there, we were overwhelmed with the response from our artist friends in Nashville, and even celebrities and actors based in Hollywood!"
Melissa Peterman is slated to kick off the week on Monday, February 13, with various guests hosting one or two days through Monday, February 20; Garner will return on Tuesday, February 21. In addition, Garner's new online video feature "Backstage Pass," where he comments on the latest celebrity news, will be hosted by Turner, Hayes and Pickler during his vacation.
