Who says you have to be a country singer to emcee the CMT awards?

Kristen Bell will be joining nominee Toby Keith for hosting duties at the 11th annual awards on June 6, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

"It's an honor to get that call," says seven-time CMT winner Keith, 50, about being asked back to host to show. He and Pamela Anderson co-hosted in 2003.

Bell, who will be escorted to Nashville by fiancé Dax Shepherd (sans sloth), is already eager to make her first trip to Music City.

"Country music makes me happy," the actress, 31, tells PEOPLE. And she's most excited about meeting her co-host – and the possibility of coming face to face with her country crush, Miranda Lambert.

Carrie Underwood and Thompson Square each took home three awards, but Toby Keith may have stolen the evening, winning artist of the decade and performing his insanely quirky and catchy song "Red Solo Cup."

"Hell, anybody can have a good decade, huh?" he said. "I've had a great decade and I hope I have another one."

Just call him coach.

Toby Keith may be a Country Music Awards-winning megastar, but when he's at his home just outside of Norman, Okla., he trades the stage for the football field with his son, Stelen.

He has coached his 13-year-old son's football team for the past six years, and the players have gotten used to their superstar mentor. "Kids do better with that than adults do," Keith, 49, tells PEOPLE Country for its September issue. "They are just, 'Hey, coach! Can I go in?' "

When they're not on the field, they're hitting the basketball court: Keith says he shoots hoops with Stelen's "herd of friends" at their home almost every night.
