Luke Bryan Says His Fingers Are Crossed

How the ACM Hosts Feel About Their Nominations

I think Dierks Bentley said it best when he said, “Nice to be nominated when you’re up there hosting.”

I mean, right?

It’s one thing to get a hosting gig, but quite another to get nominated. And to get both? Well, that’s the ultimate goal.

So when the Academy of Country Music posed the question to Bentley, he said that to be nominated for the album of the year felt amazing.

“To get that recognition, most importantly from the fans that go out there and buy that album, buy those singles, sing those songs back to you so loudly night after night; that’s the biggest recognition you can possibly get. But obviously getting the recognition from your peers and everyone in the business is really nice, too. So it’s nice to have both if you can get it,” Bentley said.
