Singer Luke Bryan is joining Blake Shelton to co-host the Academy of Country Music Awards.
This year's show will be held April 7. Brad Paisley will host the ACM Fan Jam, a satellite event held simultaneously with the show.
Mr. Bryan replaces Reba McEntire, who served as host for more than a decade before stepping aside to concentrate on her new sitcom, "Malibu Country." Mr. Shelton began sharing hosting duties with Ms. McEntire two years ago.
The 48th annual ACM Awards will be broadcast live on CBS from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.music
