July 29, 2013 at 10:15 AM (PT)
CAPITOL NASHVILLE artist DIERKS BENTLEY will return as host of the "7th ANNUAL ACM HONORS," (NET NEWS 7/25) to take place at the RYMAN AUDITORIUM in NASHVILLE on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10th at 7p (CT). The event will recognize the special honorees and off-camera category winners from the "48th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS" that took place earlier this year.
“I really didn’t know what to expect last year when they asked me to host, but it was a total blast. There are no cameras like there are at a regular award show, so anything goes," said BENTLEY. “The ACM put together a really special show honoring some important people in our business, and I’m just glad I earned an invitation back… despite some of my off-script jokes!”
"ACM HONORS" Producer/ Writer LISA LEE said, “DIERKS set a new standard for 'ACM HONORS' hosts last year, approaching the event with both reverence for each honoree and with a shot of colorful humor – the fans responded to him and we are so excited to have him return this year. His talent, passion and respect for Country music make him ideally suited to host this unique ACADEMY event.”
The awards will be open to the public, with tickets available for $40 via TICKETMASTER beginning this FRIDAY (8/2) at 8a (PT).
