omg! Insider correspondent Keltie Colleen met up with country crooner Luke Bryan to chat about his co-hosting duties at the ACM Awards on Sunday. This will be Luke's first time hosting the show, and he's got plenty to talk about regarding his prestigious new role.

The Southern heartthrob will share the stage with Voice coach Blake Shelton and joked about his counterpart’s wild and sometimes unpredictable on-air behavior: "The fact that he's my mentor through this is pretty scary!”

But the "Spring Break-Up" singer didn't seem too nervous for his upcoming gig --he kept cool when asked about filling the shoes of former host Reba McEntire. "To say that I’m gonna fill Reba’s shoes, that ain’t gonna happen."

Just to make sure Luke's well-prepared, Keltie made sure to give Luke her own best hosting tips to prep him for the big day. Check out the vid to see Luke practice her moves! And be sure to tune in to omg! Insider on TV tonight to see the full interview!

The 2013 ACM Awards will air Sunday on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
