Dierks Bentley says he and Luke Bryan “got fired” from hosting 2018 ACM Awards

ABC/Image Group LADierks Bentley and Luke Bryan won’t be hosting the 2018 ACM Awards. During a Q&A session Monday at the Country Radio Seminar in Nashville, Dierks broke the news as a photo of him and Luke from the ACMs appeared on screen.

“That’s over… We got fired,” Dierks said to a room full of surprised radio professionals. “Is that not common knowledge?”

Billboard reports that both Dierks’ manager and the ACM confirmed that the country singers will not return for the 2018 award show after hosting together for two years. This year’s host will be revealed in the coming weeks.

The 2018 ACMs will be held on April 15 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
