This year, Las Vegas will once again play host to the Academy of Country Music’s ACM Awards. Country star Dierks Bentley has been tapped to host the annual event for a second consecutive year, but hosting will not be the only thing he plans to do while in Sin City.
“Sitting by the pool in Las Vegas is the best” Bentley recently told the Las Vegas Review-Journal when they asked what his ACM weekend would consist of. “Having a drink and saving my voice. It’s a great feeling as time allows it.”
Bentley also plans to gamble a little bit. “I gamble a little bit, blackjack. But, I’ll save craps for Luke Bryan and Charles Kelley for when those high rollers come to town.”
When it comes time for the awards show, Bentley will serve as host along with Luke Bryan once again. He has also been nominated for three awards: Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year (Black) and Vocal Event of the Year.
His co-host and apparent craps fan Luke Bryan will be up for the night’s biggest award, Entertainer of the Year.
The 52nd ACM Awards will take place on Sunday, April 2 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. You can watch the event live only on CBS3.
