We already knew that BLUKE, better known as Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, would return to cohost the ACM Awards for a second time next year. Now, though, we know when to tune in. On Sunday, April 6, 2014, the 49th annual ACM Awards will air live from the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, starting at 8pm ET and broadcast on CBS.
The show will mark Shelton’s fourth consecutive time as a host. Bryan, who’s also the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year, began his cohosting duties in 2013.
Reigning New Artist and New Duo of the Year Florida Georgia Line will host the fourth annual ACM Fan Jam, which will take place April 6 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The live show will give country music fans the chance to be a part of the ACM’s performances as well as a private concert by Florida Georgia Line after the ceremony is over. Additional ACM-related events will be announced as the date draws closer.
