Reese Witherspoon to Present at ACM Awards


The Academy of Country Music Awards just got a little more Hollywood (or maybe Hollywood got a little more country?) with the addition of presenters Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson for the April 3 ceremony.

The pair portray a couple in the upcoming film adaptation of Sara Gruen's bestseller Water for Elephants. Reese Witherspoon is no stranger to the country music scene; her portrayal of June Carter Cash in the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line earned the actress an Academy Award. The country music world may be new territory for Twilight star Robert Pattinson.

The Academy of Country Music Awards, which will air on CBS at 8 ET, already boasts a stellar lineup that includes performers Alabama, Jason Aldean, Ronnie Dunn, Sara Evans, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Reba, Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Zac Brown Band and James Taylor.
