Sam Hunt has been replaced by Chris Janson at the upcoming NASCAR Awards co-hosted by Cassadee Pope set for December 5 in Nashville.

Word is Hunt that pulled out of the event after his recent DUI arrest on November 21.

As we reported, Sam called his decision to drive after drinking a “selfish” one and has put forth a public apology. He has not said anything regarding his latest cancellation, however, as of press time. He’ll appear in a Nashville courtroom on January 17.

Hunt’s replacement Chris Janson said of his involvement in the upcoming event, “I’m thrilled to be bringing my music to the NASCAR celebration in Nashville. We love NASCAR, the drivers and the fans! It’s going to be a good time!”
