Luke Bryan & Dierks Bentley Will Not Host 2018 ACM Awards

Bentley broke the news during a Q&A session Monday afternoon at Country Radio Seminar in Nashville.
After two years, Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley are out as hosts of the Academy of Country Music Awards.

Bentley broke the news in a seemingly off-handed comment during a Q&A session Monday afternoon at Country Radio Seminar in Nashville.

As a photo of Bentley and Bryan from the ACMs flashed on the screen, he said, “That’s over… We got fired. Is that not common knowledge?” Bentley’s manager confirmed the news.

The ACM confirmed that Bryan and Bentley will not return to the award show, adding this year’s host information will be announced in 2-3 weeks.
