After Reba McEntire announced she wouldn't be back as co-host with Blake Shelton for the ACm Awards, everyone has had a thought on who would be her replacement.  Those who guessed Luke Bryan (put your hand down no one guessed that), were right.

Reba had hosted the ACM awards for several years solo, before joing Blake Shelton for the last few.  Blake had been soliciting fans to tweet his search vowing to make the announcement when it hit 25 thousand tweets.  That happened to day with the announcement that Luke will co-host the show at the MGM in Las Vegas April 7.  As last year, the show will also feature live feeds from a nearby concert hosted by Brad Paisley.  The show will air on CBS.
