Luke Bryan & Dierks Bentley named hosts of ACM Awards

Luke Bryan will return for the fourth time to co-host next year's Academy of Country Music Awards, alongside Dierks Bentley, who will be co-hosting for the first time.

Bryan, the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year, made the announcement Tuesday on Twitter. The show will be broadcast live April 3 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

"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," Bryan said in a statement. "We have a lot of pleasant together & I know the fans will be in for something special."

p>Last year, Bryan & Blake Shelton were co-hosts.
