ACM Awards: Blake Shelton Passing Hosting Torch

"Beer Me," Says Dierks Bentley to Luke Bryan's Invitation

According to Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton is slammed. And that’s why he has to pass the torch on hosting the ACM Awards.

Bryan is still going to host the show, but he needed a new co-host since Shelton didn’t sign on for the 2016 awards show.

Enter Dierks Bentley. When Bryan asks him — in this promotional video — Bentley just says, “Beer me.”

Which is country for, “Hell, yes.”
