Last year’s ACM Awards co-hosts Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley will not return this year to host the 2018 ACM Awards, the Academy of Country Music has confirmed.
Bentley leaked the news during today’s launch of Country Radio Seminar in Nashville, with an off-the-cuff comment during a Q&A Session.
As a photo of Bentley and Bryan at the Academy of Country Music Awards was portrayed on a screen, he commented, “That’s over… We got fired. Is that not common knowledge?”
The Academy of Country Music has confirmed the news with musicrow.com.
A representative from the Academy of Country Music also noted that host information for this year’s ACM Awards will be announced in coming weeks. The broadcast will air on April 15 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
