Luke Bryan To Cohost 48th ACM Awards With Blake Shelton

The mystery of who will be cohosting the 48th annual ACM Awards with Blake Shelton is now solved. According to a statement released today from the Academy of Country Music, the person who will replace Reba (who stepped down from the post late last year) is Luke Bryan.

The date for the award show was also revealed to be Sunday, April 7. The show will be broadcast live from Las Vegas on CBS.

As we reported earlier, Blake posted a funny video where he asked fans to not be terribly disappointed by who the cohost will be, because times were “desperate” and “we had to take what we could get.”

Luke, though, had a few choices words of his own, which he shared today in a video of his own. Blake, it seems, better watch his back up on that stage. 

To add to the star power, the ACM announced that Brad Paisley will be hosting the third annual Fan Jam, also taking place on April 7.

Tune in to the 48th annual ACM Awards live on Sunday, April 7 at 8pm ET (delayed PT) on CBS.
