Hot on the heels of the news that Luke Bryan would be serving as Blake Shelton's co-host for the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, it has been announced that Brad Paisley will host the 3rd Annual ACM Fan Jam.

The Fan Jam is scheduled to take place at the Orleans Arena on Sunday, April 7. It's offsite from the main show, but still allows fans the chance to interact and be a part of the festivities.

Throughout the three-hour ACMs telecast from the MGM Grand Garden, which begins at 8PM ET, there will be live Fan Jam performances piped in via remote. Paisley himself will perform, as will other country A-listers.

Even when the telecast ends, the Fan Jam will continue, as Paisley and friends will keep the party going with a performance. Those details, including the other acts that will participate, will be revealed at a later time.

Can't wait? Well, you can unlock a special message simply by tweeting. A special tidbit from Paisley will be delivered immediately post-tweet by visiting here.

Another ACM tradition that will continue? For the fourth year in a row, an all-star concert will be taped on Monday, April 8 at 7PM at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, featuring some of your country favorites. Which acts are involved will be revealed soon, so hold tight. That special will air on CBS at a later date. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit ACM Lifting Lives.
