Miranda Lambert happy to leave the hosting to Blake Shelton

By Phyllis Stark. CREATED Apr 6, 2014

Blake Shelton is co-hosting the Academy of Country Music Awards for the fourth consecutive time Sunday night, but wife Miranda Lambert says she has no ambitions to follow in his footsteps and host an awards show herself someday. 

Miranda tells People Country that Blake has a gift she doesn’t believe she possesses.
 
"My comedic timing isn't good," Lambert told People on the eve of the awards. "You know, the timing you naturally have to have. Blake is the best. I don't know how he does it." 
 
She adds that she has "no desire" to try her hand at hosting,” saying, “I’m not good at that stuff not at all. I would totally fall flat on my face." 
 
Collectively, the couple is nominated for a dozen awards tonight, with Miranda up for seven and Blake vying for five.
 
The Academy of Country Music Awards air Sunday night beginning at at 8 p.m. (ET) on CBS. Blake is co-hosting with Luke Bryan.
