All eyes have been on Adam Levine after The Voice coach recently nabbed People magazine’s highly coveted “Sexiest Man Alive” spot, but friend and rival coach Blake Shelton’s year has been pretty stellar, too. On the heels of winning “Male Vocalist Of The Year” at the recent Country Music Awards, it’s just been announced that Shelton will co-host the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards with Luke Bryan.
Considering Shelton is a four-time ACM Award winner and Bryan is the current ACM Entertainer of the Year, they are certainly solid choices as co-hosts. The show, which is produced by Dick Clark Productions and broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, will air on Sunday, April 6, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. It will be Shelton’s fourth consecutive year taking the helm while it will be Bryan’s second year in the hosting role.
In concert with this production will be the 4th Annual ACM Fan Jam, which also takes place on Sunday, April 6, at nearby Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. The three-hour telecast will include live performances by reigning New Artist and New Duo of the Year Florida Georgia Line, along with other top-notch acts that are still to be named.
Although no country singers remain on this season of The Voice, Shelton’s genre of music is going strong. Will you tune in to watch him co-host the ACM Awards? Tell us in the comments!
