POLL: Who Should Win Entertainer of the Year at the 2018 CMA Awards?
The 2018 CMA Awards will take place on Nov. 14, but before the all-star party at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena for the 52nd annual event, The Boot wants to know who our readers think will go home with the awards in each of the show's 12 categories. We've rounded up the details on all of the nominees, from Musician of the Year to Entertainer of the Year, and we want your input.
One of the biggest honors in the industry, Entertainer of the Year at the CMA Awards is a lineup of the names in country entertainment. In 2017, Garth Brooks took home the trophy for the sixth time, his third back-to-back win, but he's not among this year's nominees.
Jason Aldean is in the running this year -- for the first time since 2013! His buddy Luke Bryan is back on the list of nominees for the sixth consecutive time, after winning back-to-back Entertainer of the Year trophies in 2014 and 2015.
Kenny Chesney is another repeat winner in this category, and no wonder, with the No Shoes Nation thronging to his stadium shows across the country every time. Chris Stapleton is nominated for Entertainer of the Year for the second year in a row, while Keith Urban is a category veteran with a win in 2005 and multiple nominations in the years since.
Who do you think should win Entertainer of the Year at the 2018 CMA Awards? Vote in the poll below through the end of the day on Nov. 11. The Boot will use the answers in our readers vs. staff predictions a few days prior to the ceremony.
The 2018 CMA Awards will air live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 14. The show is scheduled to begin at 8PM ET on ABC, with Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood returning as co-hosts for an 11th year.
