John Hamlin is used to wrangling on-camera talent. After 20 years as a "60 Minutes" producer working with Mike Wallace and Anderson Cooper, Hamlin now corrals the likes of Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan as executive producer of the CMT Music Awards, which drew 3 million viewers in 2012. This year's 12th annual event is set to air June 5 (8 p.m. ET/PT on CMT and CMT.com).
