Dierks Bentley Replaces Blake Shelton as Luke Bryan's ACM Awards 2016 Co-Host!

Luke Bryan will be returning as the host of the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards, but with a new co-host by his side!

For the fourth year in a row, Luke will host, but not with his co-host Blake Shelton, but with pal Dierks Bentley.

“When we found ourselves searching for a new co-host I didn’t have to look much further than my own circle of friends so Dierks was a natural choice,” Luke said in a statement. “We have a lot of fun together and I know the fans will be in for something special.”

“I think everyone knows Luke is the guy you call when you want to have a good time,” Dierks added. “If we have half as much fun hosting together as we do backstage, it’s going to be a great night.”

The show will air on April 3, 2016 on CBS!
