“You know, Blake’s a beautiful line dancer,” said Luke Bryan in an interview with the Dallas Morning News.
Blake Shelton and Bryan visited the AT&T stadium in Arlington, Texas -the future site of the 50th ACM Awards, where they talked about hosting the event and of course, cracked a few jokes.
“It’s free-style. It’s whatever you’re feeling at the moment,” said Shelton in defense of his spontaneous “line dancing.”
Watch the entire interview below. You can catch Blake and Luke hosting the ACM Awards in April. We can’t wait!

Luke Bryan was on The Bobby Bones Show this week, and was challenged to a helium sing-off. After sucking in a balloon full of helium Bobby sang his version of “Drink A Beer.”
Luke did not waste any time as he swallowed two balloons full of helium and sang his rendition of ‘That’s My Kind of Night.’
We think the boys are giving Alvin & The Chipmunks a run for their money! What do you think? Watch the video below.
CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan is in mourning this week following the loss of his brother-in-law. He was set to perform and be honored at the CMT Artists of the Year show on Tuesday but cancelled to be with family in Georgia.
Ben Lee Cheshire is the widowed husband of Luke’s only sister,
Kelly, who died back in 2007. The family had three children.
In lieu of Bryan’s absence, a CMT rep told People Magazine “We are going to honor Luke in absentia and will recognize him in only the best way we know how – out of respect for him and his family.”
Lady Antebellum and songwriter Chris Stapleton, paid tribute to Bryan at the show performing his hit song “Drink a Beer,” which was written in honor of his
late brother and sister.
Luke Bryan watched the performance and went to Twitter to give thanks for the support.
“That was amazing. Truly. Thank you Charles, Dave, Hillary and Chris! Beautiful!!! Thank you fans for your love.” -@LukeBryanOnline
