There’s no doubt Dierks Bentley has big shoes to fill stepping into Blake Shelton’s former role as Luke Bryan’s co-host on the ACM Awards. Lucky for us, Blake isn’t staying away from the show completely this year.
“The Voice” star has just been added to the performers lineup for the show, along with Little Big Town, Old Dominion and Charles Kelley. Kacey Musgraves, Kip Moore, Jake Owen, Chase Rice, Cole Swindell, Chris Janson, Jana Kramer and Martina McBride are lined up as presenters on the 51st Annual ACM Awards.
So, we know Blake will probably perform something from his upcoming album, “If I’m Honest,” on the show. If we had our vote, he’d find some way to include his pal Luke Bryan in the performance. The two teamed up on the ACM’s back in 2013 for this collaboration of Blake’s hit, “Boys Round Here.”
The 51st Annual ACM Awards will broadcast live from Las Vegas Sunday, April 3 on CBS.
