Singer Luke Bryan, jokingly, gets political about ACM Awards

As previously reported, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are collaborating on "Speak To A Girl", while Florida Georgia Line and Backstreet Boys will sing "God, Your Mama, and Me".

The awards show has had positive ratings swings in recent years.

The awards show itself begins on CBS at 8:00 p.m. In addition to hosting the event this year he could return to the awards lineup for the first time since he took over "The Late Show" in 2015.

What Time Are the ACM Awards?

Joss Whedon to Write, Direct Batgirl DC Extended Universe Movie

While we have our share of Pinterest addicts in the Rare Country office, we're confident that both Luke and Dierks will be just fine hosting the ACM Awards this year.

Las Vegas is going country. The country stars also give a significant chunk of the performance over to dazzling brass, guitar and keyboard solos from Stay Human, who improvise atop the song's hydraulic backbeat with gusto. This is a show that does have some more heartfelt moments, but for the most part we consider it to be one of the more entertaining, humor-filled music awards shows. Also competing for the title are Dierks Bentley's "Black", "Dig Your Roots" by Florida Georgia Line and Keith Urban's "Ripcord", which also received a Grammy nomination. Bryan contends for Entertainer of the Year, which he has won twice before (2013, 2015).
