Blake Shelton promises to be on his best behavior this Sunday night when he co-hosts the ACM Awards with Reba McEntire. In a recent interview, he put the show producers' minds at ease by saying, "I just want you to know that uh, I take this serious. It’s a big deal to me. I definitely wouldn’t bring Reba down with me. Making fun of, you know, Craig Morgan’s toupee or whatever you would say, you know, that would upset country fans.”

Shelton’s name has been brought up on many occasions in regards to hosting various award shows, but due to his racy Twitter posts, show producers have in the past have been hesitant. Though his irreverent ways may have hindered him before, producers of this year's ACM's actually asked him to co-host because of his colorful tweets. ACM executive director Bob Romeo is not worried because of who Shelton's co-host is. Romeo says, "Reba can keep him on a leash."

Reba has hosted the ACM's 13 times, and she thinks co-hosting with Shelton will be full of surprises -- and that he will make the show even more interesting.

We can rest assured that Shelton is on the same page as CBS, who is airing the event, so it will all make for a great show. Before the big night, Shelton plays host to another ACM-related gig -- he will run the first-ever NRA Country/ACM Celebrity Shoot April 2 at Nellis Air Force Base.

The ACMs will air live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on April 3 on CBS.
