During the show, both Luke and Dierks are up for some major awards!
The 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards are headed to Sin City, bringing along some of Nashville's brightest stars for the prestigious event.
The special will be broadcast live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Sunday, April 2nd live from 8-11 pm ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network. And they're not just the presenters for this year's ceremony.
Colbert points out that he'll be hosting the Emmy Awards later in the year and asks (not that he needs it) if they have any advice, to which Bentley drily responds "Drinking".
They joked about having a bar set up behind their awards show set. The CMA Awards, the American Music Awards and the MTV Video Music Awards have been losing viewers over the past three years as viewership becomes more fragmented.
Forecast: An Actually Not-So-Surprising April Snowstorm Comes Friday, Ends Saturday
The precipitation - rain, snow, sleet or a mixture - is expected to taper off around sunrise and exit the region by around 9 a.m. A potent spring storm will bring accumulating snow to parts of the Intermountain West, including Denver, into Saturday night .
Country music will also crown its best newcomers. "It's very important to me".
This year's ACM lineup includes reigning entertainer of the year Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Little Big Town, Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts and Kelsea Ballerini.
Great job. While on the show, Luke and Dierks also shared how they plan on getting through their hosting gig- with help from the full bar located backstage.
As previously reported, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are collaborating on "Speak To A Girl", while Florida Georgia Line and Backstreet Boys will sing "God, Your Mama, and Me".
