Vegas will once again be going country, but this time it’s for the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. The superstar-filled event will be bursting at the seams with country artists this year — it’s just been announced that Jennifer Nettles of SugarlandShania Twain and others will present awards during the event.

It will be great to see the spunky Nettles, since she’s kept quiet ever since her bundle of joy, Magnus, was born. Twain is certainly no stranger to these awards shows, having been a standout in the country music scene for years and years.

Also taking the stage to present at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards will be newcomer favorites Florida Georgia Line, plus country crossover Kid Rock and television country star Hayden Panettiere of ABC’s ‘Nashville.’ Non-country acts presenting include Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion, Ke$ha and Carly Rae Jepsen, among others.

It’s going to be a great night for the genre, as several country acts have been nominated for Billboard Awards, as well, including Taylor SwiftLuke Bryan and Carrie Underwood. In fact, the ’22′ hitmaker has 11 nominations in all, including the prestigious Top Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist and Top Social Artist.

Swift will also show off her crossover success by performing at the red carpet event, as will the ‘Better Dig Two’ sibling trio the Band Perry. After they rocked the stage at the 2013 ACMs, fans of the group are eagerly anticipating what type of performance they’ll unveil this time around.

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards will air this Sunday, May 19, on ABC at 8PM ET, live from Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena.
