Luke Bryan was desperately searching the honky tonks on Lower Broad in downtown Nashville for a new co-host for the ACM Awards next April…and he found one in pal Dierks Bentley.
Before Dierks gets there, Luke encounters his “Drunk on a Plane” alter ego, Holden Mike Johnson, as well as his Hot Country Knights persona, Douglas “Big Rhythm Doug” Douglason.
“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,” says Luke. “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,” adds Dierks. “If we have half as much fun hosting together as we do backstage, it’s going to be a great night.”
The 51st Annual ACM Awards return to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas April 3rd at 8pm ET on CBS.
