So 2011 was a big year for some of country's best and brightest.  Some guys and gals had awards, huge album sales and massive concert tours, but in the end, it all pales in comparison to what YOU, the fans, think.  Since we love country music and democracy, we thought we'd mix them up and give you a chance to tell us who you thought was the reigning artist of 2011!

Who did 2011 belong to?

 

All you got to do is vote in our little poll below, and then tune in to Gator 99.5 at 9 a.m., Friday, Dec. 30 to find out who won.  Tell your friends -- get them to vote, too.  There's no limit on how many times you can cast your ballot -- if you're a big fan of a certain artist on this list, then it's time to get after it!  Share our poll with your friends on Facebook.  Tell the fan club about us.  Whatever you got to do, do it!  Show how big a fan you are by helping to elect the Gator 99.5 2011 Artist of the Year!

Plus, if you think 2011 belonged to an artist other than someone on our list, feel free to add your write-in vote below!

 

Just get it done before 5 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 29.  That's when we cut off the voting!

Then tune in starting at 9 a.m., Friday, Dec. 30 to find out who won!
