    2013- ACM- Host(s) Reba McEntire Won’t Return to Host ACM Awards in 2013

    Reba McEntire Won’t Return to Host ACM Awards in 2013



    Reba McEntire has hosted the ACM Awards more than a dozen times since first emceeing the annual event in 1999, but the music legend admits she has no plans to return for the 2013 ceremony. Instead, the Oklahoma native has found a suitable replacement in a fellow Okie and country music superstar — her standing co-host Blake Shelton.

    “No. [I’ve] passed the torch to Blake. I’m a huge Blake Shelton fan,” said the singer when asked if she would return to the 2013 ACM Awards ceremony, according to Country Weekly.

    Shelton is no stranger to the telecast, first appearing alongside McEntire during the 2011 ceremony. The pair’s natural charisma and playful onstage banter led to the reigning ACM Male Vocalist of the Year’s second-consecutive appearance as McEntire’s partner in comedy crime in 2012, which received strong ratings and gave CBS a healthy lead in viewership during its time slot.

    Ah man I loved Reba as a co host. Wonder who will replace her? By the sound of the article it sounds like just Blake. Wouldn't mind Jennifer Nettles or Kellie Pickler taking the slot though.

    "Country music superstar" ? Not many people in Los Angeles area know who he is -- well, maybe as the judge of the VOICE

    Miranda cohosting just won't work
    To me Miranda doesn't have the tv presence/savvy to pull it off.
    Jen Nettles would be great!

    ^^I would LOVE Jen to co-host the ACMs with Brad. Hopefully, motherhood won't interfere with the hosting duties!!

    Pretty sure it will be Blake alone.
    I liked Reba alot. I thought she brought elegance and class.
    I already know what to expect from Blake if he is alone.

    Blake did a great job co-hosting last year. He should do a great job on his own. He will have writers working with him on his jokes after all, so even if one doesn't care for Blake's sense of humor, it should still be alright.
    It does sound like Blake will be hosting solo, not with a co-host.

    If they go the couple route, there will be too many comparisons made to Carrie and Brad - smart to just let the one
    person host the show - it's different and it works if it's the right person. Sorry to see Reba leave - I always enjoy her easy manner and she's right there to stick up for people if she feels they've been wronged. It won't be the same without her but 12 times is alot and there's alot of prep that goes into those hosting duties - You will be missed Reba

    I thought that Luke and Kimberly did a fantastic job on the CMA Country's night to rock. I know they won't replace Blake and probably Miranda but I'd love to see them replace Trace and Kristin.

    Not a fan of Blake's personality, but he will still be a good host. Gonna miss Reba though.

    I feel like he would do better on his own.
    Less opportunity to get into trouble (wink)!
    (and yes, he has probably earned the honor by now)

    I agree, though I thought Luke need a bib to catch the drool every time he made reference to Carrie and her legs.

    How would we lose our minds if it was Kelly!
    I should not speak of it. The universe might hear me.

    This was in Country Aircheck:

    » Head Solo Pup? With Reba officially stepping down from her co-host duties on the Academy of Country Music Awards, the question becomes whether Blake Shelton will have a new partner or fly solo. "Reba has hosted the ACM Awards a record 14 times since 1986, and we fully understand and support her decision to focus her energies on her new television project," ACM CEO Bob Romeo says. "We've known about this for a while and have something very special planned with Blake returning – he’s got something big up his sleeve that we’ll be announcing soon. Stay tuned!
