Luke & Dierks OUT as ACM Awards Co-Hosts
Two years into their co-hosting stint at the ACM Awards, Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley are being replaced. Dierks participated in a Q & A session in Nashville on Monday, February 5th during Country Radio Seminar where he broke the news.
Billboard reports that a photo of Dierks and Luke from the ACMs flashed on the screen and Dierks said, “That’s over . . . We got fired. Is that not common knowledge?” Dierks manager has also confirmed the news.
The ACM has not yet announced their replacement.
Dierks replaced Luke’s previous co-host, Blake Shelton, in 2016. Blake co-hosted with Luke since 2013. The 2018 ACM Awards is set to take place on April 15th in Las Vegas.
