It will be a family affair at the CMT Music Awards, as the father-daughter duo of Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus will host this year’s ceremony in Nashville.

No stranger to award shows, the Hannah Montana star, 15, was a presenter at both the Grammys and Oscars this month. She and her 46-year-old dad, the “Achy, Breaky Heart” singer, will also perform during the show, which airs live on April 14. Other performers include Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Brad Paisley.

The ‘tween sensation recently wrapped up a 70-date sold out concert tour and had the No. 1 film in the country with a 3-D release of Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour. Cyrus is not only dominating arenas and the box office, she is also being hailed as a role model.

The Cyruses will keep busy after the CMT Awards, as production is scheduled to begin this spring on The Hannah Montana Movie.
