The Real Reason Luke And Dierks Are OUT As Hosts Of The ACM Awards...

In the beginning of February Dierks Bentley made a comment during a Q&A in regards to hosting the ACM's with Luke Bryan, "That's over...we got fired. Is that not common knowledge?" Well, no, it wasn't common knowledge and people started freaking out! What could possibly have caused this comedic country duo to get canned?!

Some speculated that it could have been due to touring schedules for both artists as well as Luke Bryan joining the reboot of American Idol as a judge (which starts on March 11th.) But, speculate no more - maybe it was just a different direction they were headed in? Or maybe just maybe it was time for this lady to come back!

Just announced today, along with the list of nominees...REBA is IN as this years ACM Host! She will return to host the award show on April 15th live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Hear her talk all about it:
