Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton are getting ready to co-host the 50th ACM Awards, coming up on April 19 in a new state: Texas. It's a big anniversary for the awards show, but if Bryan and Shelton are nervous, they aren't showing it.
"This is the 50th anniversary," Shelton says. "I mean, what else can you really say? There are going to be 60,000 people in this room. It's going to be the biggest stars in country music. I remember when I told them to bring it out here -- that's been, like, four or five years ago."
The two singers, who have hosted the ACM Awards together every years since 2012, are keeping the mood light as they gear up for the all-star night, and they plan to continue showcasing their off-screen camaraderie during the live televised broadcast.
"I just think whenever we get out there, and we're hosting, it's like, 'Man, this show used to be so good," Shelton quips in the behind-the-scenes video above. "And now we're out here, destroying its reputation. I feel bad about it."
"And they ask us back," Bryan adds. "Every year."
"We're the only two in country music that can read," Shelton says.
Breaking a decade-plus-long tradition, the 2015 ACM Awards will be held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The ceremony has been held in Las Vegas every year since 2002.
“We couldn’t be happier with Las Vegas,” ACM President Bob Romeo explains. “We love Vegas. We just want to do an event for our 50th anniversary that will generate a lot of media interest.”
The 2015 ACM Awards will air live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on April 19 at 8PM ET on CBS.
