Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley will co-host the 51st Academy of Country Music Awards next year.

The ACM Awards will return to Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena and broadcast live on Sunday, April 3, 2016 at 8 PM ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.

The show, produced by dick clark productions, will mark reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Bryan’s fourth consecutive turn hosting the Awards, and Bentley’s first time hosting a live televised event.

“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,” said Bryan. “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,” said Bentley. “If we have half as much fun hosting together as we do backstage, it’s going to be a great night.”

Tickets for the ACM Awards will go on sale Dec. 18 at ticketmaster.com.
