Little Big Town has four ACM Awards nominations going into Sunday night's show including album of the year for Tornado . While they have their fingers crossed about taking home a trophy or four, Little Big Town's Kimberly Schlapman tells ABC News Radio they're just as excited to see Luke Bryan make his debut as Blake Shelton 's new co-host on the show. Luke replaces Blake's longtime co-host, Reba , who is often credited with reining in Blake's racy sense of humor. Kimberly's not sure if Luke is up for that task.
"They're gonna have to put, like a 15-second delay on the show," she says. "How in the world will they keep them in check? And it'll be hilarious. It'll be so entertaining and so much fun."
Since Luke and Blake's brand of humor may have the network censors up in arms, Kimberly adds with a laugh, "Reba will be back next year."
Look for Little Big Town to perform on The 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday night at 8 Eastern on CBS.
