Nobody Knows the ACM Awards Hosts Like Cole Swindell [Watch]

Subscribe to Kicks 105 on

Cole Swindell counts Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan as two of his best friends, so who better to ask about what fans can expect from the ACM Awards co-hosts, right? In this video, the “Flatliner” singer dishes on who’s most likely to get handsy with a winner, lose his shirt at the casino and tell an inappropriate joke.

Swindell and Bentley will share the stage to sing “Flatliner” at the 2017 ACM Awards on Sunday (April 2). It’s Swindell’s biggest awards show performance to date, and the singer is very excited and a lot nervous about it. It should be easy, as the pair perform it every night on Bentley’s What the Hell Tour, but the televised nature of this performance has him admitting that of the three, he’s the most likely to throw up due to pre-show nerves.

Look for Bryan to also perform, as well as possibly accept a win in the Entertainer of the Year category. The two co-hosts will share a stage for a second straight year. Among the other stars set to perform? Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett with Maren Morris and more.

Bentley is nominated in the Male Vocalist, Album of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year categories. Bryan is just nominated the Entertainer of the Year category, which went to Jason Aldean in 2016. The 2017 ACM Awards will air on CBS at 8PM ET. Taste of Country will once again provide full coverage, including red carpet photos. This year, look for our exclusive behind the scenes coverage from the full weekend in Las Vegas on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
