Two of country music’s brightest stars are re-teaming to co-host the 2017 ACM Awards in Las Vegas. Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley have been tapped to host the awards show airing on April 2. The announcement was made during a commercial that aired during the 59th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 12).
2017 marks the fifth year Bryan assumes the helm as host; it’s the second time for Bentley. The two co-hosted the show together in 2016, and Bryan spent three years co-hosting with fellow country superstar Blake Shelton prior to that.
When Bryan and Bentley hosted the show together in 2016, they admitted they were careful in the planning process when it comes to poking fun at their friends. “There’s that fine line of just the right taking it too far but not being un-classy about it. It’s obvious you’re just roasting and joking with them a bit,” Bryan says.
