Blake Shelton To Co-Host The 46th Annual ACM Awards With Reba

REPRISE/NASHVILLE artist BLAKE SHELTON will join STARSTRUCK/VALORY MUSIC CO. star REBA McENTIRE as co-host of the 46th Annual ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS. REBA’s husband, NARVEL BLACKSTOCK, manages both artists, and they also teamed up to reveal the ACM AWARD nominees on CBS-TV’s “The Early Show” last year.
ACM Exec. Director BOB ROMEO told USA TODAY: "When they did that, you saw a chemistry. They played off each other naturally. They seemed warm and spontaneously funny."
BLAKE, who is known for his (for lack of a better word, “outspoken”) tweets on TWITTER, says ROMEO and the show’s executive producer do express concerns about his raunchy humor.
"I cut them right off and tell them, 'Guys, don't worry about it,' " SHELTON said. "They're a little worried, but I think that makes them excited at the same time."
The nominees for this year’s ACM AWARDS will be revealed next month. The show will air live from the MGM GRAND GARDEN ARENA in LAS VEGAS on APRIL 3rd at 8p (ET/PT). For more info, visit www.acmcountry.com.
