Mark your calendars for April 7!  That’s the date of the 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards which will be held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.  Blake Shelton will be returning for his third year of hosting duties, but we can’t say the same for Reba, she is going into retirement.  So, who is taking the position of Blake Shelton’s sidekick?  Thomas Luther Bryan….WHO????

Now, let’s get one thing straight, Blake Shelton is bummed that Reba won’t be coming back, but “The Voice’ coach said he knows she’s busy with her new sitcom, so he understands.

So, who IS Thomas Luther Bryan?  Have you figured it out?  The coveted co-hosting gig goes to Luke Bryan!

THIS should be good, given the sense of humor both artists posses. In fact, it will be interesting to hear their banter to entertain the audience.

It won’t be the first time to the rodeo for Luke Bryan, he was red carpet host at the CMAs for ‘The Ellen Show.’    You may remember that Blake kissed Luke during his interview , so we have no idea what to expect with this year’s ACM show!!

One thing is for sure, Luke won’t be able to sport the evening gown quite like Reba! (but, who knows, he may try, lol)
