Luke Bryan Will “Train Wreck the Show,” If Necessary

ACM Awards Hosts Have a Plan in Case of Emergency

If any kind of Warren Beatty situation goes down at the upcoming Academy of Country Music Awards, hosts Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley have a plan.

They would, in Bryan’s words, “train wreck the show.”

He joked with The Tennessean newspaper in Nashville that if something went wrong, like it did on Sunday night (Feb. 26) at the Academy Awards when Beatty accidentally announced the wrong winner for best picture, they’d be ready with some kind of diversion.

“Luke’s going to have a wardrobe malfunction. At least that way everyone talks about that and not the show,” Bentley said. “We played it so loose last year at the top, we could have had our own Oscar moment.”

“What a debacle, but it gets a lot of press,” Bryan added.

“It’s sad nobody is talking about what happened at the Oscars. That’s our approach, Dierks,” he said, “train wreck the show.”

The ACM Awards show takes place April 2 in Las Vegas.
