The 56th annual Academy of Country Music Awards are coming to you live from Nashville on April 18th and we finally have our hosts — and one is making ACM Awards history!
On Thursday (March 11), Keith Urban took to social media to announce that he’ll be one of the hosts of this year’s show and surprised Mickey Guyton with the news that he wants her as a co-host!
This is only the second time a Black artist has hosted the awards show in its 56-year history. Guyton follows in the footsteps of the late Charley Pride who co-hosted in 1980 and 1984.
“For the second time, I’m going to get to host the ACM Awards live in Nashville. But, I also love collaborating and I was thinking it would be kinda cool if I had someone to co-host with this time,” he said.
Urban then calls up Guyton and surprises her with the news. “I thought seeing how we played together last year, it would be really fun if we did it together. Would you be up for co-hosting this year with me?”
Of course, Guyton said “yes” and the new mom is overcome with emotion and joy. “I’m trying to be really calm right now and professional but yes, yes I would love to,” she told him.
