of the upcoming  48th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Bryan was revealed as the co-host after an ACM Twitter campaign to “unlock” the name of Blake’s new co-host. Country legend and two-time Shelton co-host,Reba McEntire chose not to share the duties with Shelton due to prior commitments with her show  “Malibu Country”, according to a report in The Boot.

In a video response to Blake on the ACM website, Luke Bryan said, “I feel like the ACM’s really knew what they were doing when they chose someone like me, someone well spoken from the south, someone who maintained their country roots, hadn’t moved out to LA and left us all behind in Nashville.

“Someone who can relate to the fans, someone who help pick Blake up, keep the show rolling for when it may be slipping away from him.”

The 48th annual award show will mark reigning ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Shelton’s third consecutive turn hosting a live televised event.

In addition, Brad Paisley will host the Fan Jam from the Orleans Arena, which runs concurrently with the ACM telecast and features acts performing live in a free show.

Country Music’s Party of the Year airs Sunday, April 7 at 8:00PM on CBS.
