Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley “Got Fired” From Hosting the ACM Awards

Dierks Bentley dropped a juicy nugget of information during a Q&A session at Nashville’s Country Radio Seminar on Feb. 5: he and Luke Bryan will not be back to co-host the 2018 ACM Awards in April.

According to Billboard, Dierks made the impromptu revelation after a photo of the ACM co-hosts appeared on a screen, saying, “That’s over . . . we got fired. Is that not common knowledge?”

Luke and Dierks co-hosted the ACM Awards in 2016 and 2017. Luke also co-hosted the show with Blake Shelton from 2013–2015. The new ACM emcee(s) will be announced in the coming weeks.
