NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan are returning as hosts of the next year’s Academy of Country Music Awards.

The country music stars teamed up last year and things went so well they’re coming back for the April 6 awards at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The academy also announced Monday that Florida Georgia Line will host its Fan Jam, the parallel event that runs concurrently with the awards.

Bryan and FGL are two of the hottest acts in Nashville at the moment. Bryan won the ACM’s fan-voted entertainer of the year award last April in something of an upset, and Florida Georgia Line was the academy’s new artist of the year.

The academy also announced it will tape its annual television special the day after the awards, to air later in the spring. No word yet on who will perform.
