ACM Awards 2013: Jason Aldean gets a red carpet surprise

jason-aldean-acm-awards-2013.jpgJason Aldean just got a lesson in being careful who you bet against. On Sunday's (April 7) red carpet for the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, he told GAC that he had the "over/under on how many times" Luke Bryan was "gonna flub his lines" as the event's co-host (with Blake Shelton).

And then, seconds later:

A surprised Aldean was handed one of the night's pre-show honors, vocal event of the year for "The Only Way I Know" with Eric Church and ... Luke Bryan.

The odds would seem strong that Aldean's wisecracks about "my boy" Bryan, good-natured though they are, immediately lessened for the evening.


Aldean is up for two more trophies at the 2013 CMA Awards -- Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year.
