Last year, Reba hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards, and she must’ve done an excellent job. Because the ACM has asked her back to host again this year. This marks Reba’s 16th time as host, even though she took a few years off — from 2013 to 2017 — when Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and Dierks Bentley filled her shoes. The first time Reba hosted was way back in the 80s, with Mac Davis and John Schneider.
Country Music returned to Las Vegas for the first time since the tragic events of the 1st October last year. Aldean opened the 53rd Academy of Country Music awards along with Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett and Luke Bryan.
