Luke Bryan AMAs Award - H 2014

Bryan and fellow country megastar Blake Shelton will co-host the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 19.

In a message on Friday, country megastar Luke Bryan, who is nominated for the Academy of Country Music Awards' entertainer of the year award, told fans how much he appreciates them and their support.

"You give me confidence when it's easy, when it's hard; in the good and in the bad; in the ups and the downs," he says in the video. "You make me laugh, you make me cry, you make me strong." Footage of Bryan's devout fans at his concerts from across the nation play as his "Drink a Beer" single plays in the background. 

The "That's My Kind of Night" singer will co-host the ACM Awards on April 19 with fellow country megastar and friend Blake Shelton. Shelton's wife, Miranda Lambert, is also in the running for entertainer of the year alongside Jason Aldean, Garth Brooks, Florida Georgia Line and Bryan.

"You are country music fans: the best fans in the world," the video continues before he signs off with, "Love ya'll, Luke."

The ACM Awards air live on CBS at 8 p.m. on April 19. The awards are produced by Dick Clark Productions, a sister company of The Hollywood Reporter
