Little will get her opportunity this weekend as master of ceremonies for the Outnumber Hunger Live! event, sponsored by AXS TV and Big Machine Label Group, in her hometown of Las Vegas. The platinum-selling trio The Band Perry will headline the show, broadcasting Saturday night, and be joined by label mates Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore, Florida Georgia Line, Greg Bates and Cassadee Pope.
"I've been a country music fan since I was 8 years old. I remember that it was 1987 and I was listening to the Judds," said Little, who has spent the past 10 years working for ESPN and ABC. "I was also into George Strait, Clint Black and Randy Travis. I'm really excited to meet all these new country artists."
