Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley worked well together as co-hosts of the ACM Awards . Manys fanbs were looking forward to the two country stars and firends returning this year.
According to Dierks, they are out as co-hosts this year. During a Q&A at the Country Radio Seminar in Nashville, Dierks revealed that he and his buddy have lost out on the gig.
After a picture of him and Luke flashed across a screen, he noted, "That's over... We got fired. Is that not common knowledge?" His manager later confirmed that he wasn’t joking.
They co-hosted two straight years. Bryan co-hosted with Blake Shelton from 2013 to 2015. Before that, Reba McEntire fronted the show for 10 successive years.
So far there’s no word on who’ll be replacing the pair. It's also not clear if Bryan will be hosting by himself or with another co-host. The ACM Awards are set to air April 15th, live on CBS from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas
Dierks did celebrate yesterday when was honored for his charity efforts at the Country Radio Seminar where he was awarded the CRS 2018 Humanitarian Award.
