The fiery redhead revealed to CountryWeekly.com she will not return to her hosting duties for the next ACMs“¦ but someone else is!
“[I've] passed the torch to Blake,” she says. “I’m a huge Blake Shelton fan.”
Blake and Reba have co-hosted the Las Vegas party for the past two years. Blake called hosting with Reba for the first time “a very special moment.”
“She is not only a mentor to me but a true friend,” Blake says. “She continually supports other artists, which is a testament really to her beauty and talent.”
Is Blake now the lone ACM ranger? Or could he be joined by a new co-host, like ““ say ““ his outspoken wife Miranda Lambert?
No official word on that yet.
One thing’s for sure: Reba isn’t leaving your TV sets altogether. The country legend has begun shooting her new sitcom Malibu Country, which premieres this November on ABC.
The ACMs return April 2013.
