He loves being in the spotlight, and James Van Der Beek showed up at the 2014 CMT Awards earlier tonight (June 4) looking for a good time.

The “Dawson’s Creek” star gave the ladies at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena a thrill as he moseyed past the paparazzi, stopping for a few photos along the way.

The CMT Music Awards is the only show of its kind where the winners are determined by fan voting and competition is always pretty fierce.

This time around, Kristen Bell is manning the hosting duties and performers include Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum.
