The 2017 ACM Awards will bring back two familiar faces as co-hosts. Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley are returning to host the award show for a second year.

Sunday night’s (Feb. 12) Grammy Awards were so action packed, you might have missed the special announcement. During the broadcast, the ACM and CBS aired a special commercial about the 2017 ACM Awards. The 10-second clip teased Country Music’s Party of the Year and its handsome hosts.

Although Bentley is a hosting newbie, Bryan is a seasoned pro at this point. He’s been hosting for years. Before joining Bentley to host, Bryan spent a few years co-hosting with funny man Blake Shelton.

The pair will be hosting the event live from Las Vegas, but this year the award show will have a new home. The 2017 ACM Awards will call the T-Mobile Arena home for the first time. That’s just down the street from last year’s venue, the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The ACM Awards nominees haven’t been announced, but fans can stay tuned for those nominees on Feb. 16. Lady Antebellum will announce the nods live during CBS This Morning.

The 2017 ACM Awards will air live on Sunday, April 2 on CBS. We’ll have full coverage of the nominees, performers and more as the award show date gets closer.
