Luke Bryan has been all over TV with promos for the ACM Awards he’s hosting with Blake Shelton on April 7 on CBS. His first time hosting a major show, Bryan says he’s thrilled to be taking part with his buddy Blake Shelton. The 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas April 7 on CBS.
Luke Bryan says, “I’m just excited about the spontaneity and the fun-ness, and the crowd not knowing what’s going to happen. Everybody’s going to kind of be interested in and see what we’re going to pull off, and I think that’s what the night be real loose and fun. And we’re going to obviously have to be serious about stuff and it can’t be just a big ole goofy party nonstop, but I know we’re gonna enjoy it. I know Blake and I are going to work hard to make it a great show, and represent country music, hopefully, in a great way.”
