Keith Urban and Mickey Guyton will co-host the 56th ACM Awards to be held on April 18.
Urban returns for his second year after hosting the 55th ACM Awards in September, while this marks Guyton’s first time hosting the event honoring the biggest names and emerging talent in Country Music.
Guyton’s performance of her critically acclaimed song “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” at last year’s show featured Urban as a surprise guest on piano.
Urban said he is “beyond thrilled” to be co-hosting with his friend Mickey. “I love that finally everyone will get to see her infectious energy and uber creative spirit in full light,” added the 15-time ACM Award winner.
“Last year I had the opportunity to perform at the Academy of Country Music Awards with someone I long admired, Keith Urban, and this year I am incredibly excited to share hosting duties with him,” said Guyton.
The New Female Artist of the Year nominee said its an honor to step onto the ACM stage as the first ever Black woman to host the show.
