Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan Returning as Hosts of the 2014 ACM Awards
It’ll be Bluke V 2.0 in 2014. Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan — two of the funniest, most entertaining and most self-deprecating acts in country music — will reprise their roles as co-hosts of the ACM Awards in 2014.
Shelton has co-hosted the red carpet event for the past several years, joining Reba McEntire in 2011. But 2013 marked his first time hosting with Bryan, and things went so well, they’ve been asked back!
That may come as some surprise, since this is Bryan and Shelton we’re talking about. Some expected them to behave so crazily during their first stint that they would have been asked not to return! In all seriousness, the duo’s chemistry and humor made them a no brainer to host again.
Plus, Bryan is the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year. It’d be uncivilized not to have him back as a co-host. The news came via a tweet issued on the official ACMs feed on Monday (Sept. 10).
“It is true!! #BLUKE is back to host the 2014 #ACMs! Are you ready for more @blakeshelton & @LukeBryanOnline??!! #GuessWhosBackBackAgain,” the tweet reads.
So far, both Bryan and Shelton have remained mum about it. The ACMs traditionally take place in April of each year. Stay tuned for more details.
