Hayden Panettiere: White Hot at the 2012 CMA Awards

Posted Thursday November 1, 2012 8:00 PM GMT

Gearing up for an exciting evening, Hayden Panettiere showed up at the 46th Annual CMA Awards in Nashville earlier tonight (November 1).

The “Heroes” hottie beamed with beauty as she worked the arrivals area at the Bridgestone Arena, no doubt doing some research for her latest gig on “Nashville.”

And Hayden is much more than just a mere attendee at tonight’s big event- she’ll also hand out one of the illustrious award trophies.

Other presenters include The Band Perry, Martina McBride, Kellie Pickler, Lisa Marie Presley, Sugarland, Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker and Jake Owen.
