Blake Shelton will join Reba as co-host of the ACM Awards on Sun., April 3. The superstar redhead has hosted the country awards show for over a decade. Producers and show organizers say they got the idea to add Shelton to the mix when the pair appeared together on the CBS Early show.
“Last year Reba and Blake read our nominations and they were just magic together, incredibly funny,” explains Bob Romeo, CEO of the Academy of Country Music.
This marks Shelton’s debut as an award show host, as he becomes the 50th host since the inception of the ACM Awards.
The 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3, 2011 at 8:00 PM live ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.
Reba has won 12 Academy of Country Music Awards. Shelton has been nominated for three ACM Awards and won his first ACM award last year for Vocal Event of the Year for his No. 1 hit “Hillbilly Bone” featuring Trace Adkins.
