POLL: Who Should Win Entertainer of the Year at the 2017 CMA Awards?
The 2017 CMA Awards will take place on Nov. 8, but before the stars align at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena for the 51st 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.
Country Music's Biggest Night all boils down to this award: Entertainer of the Year. In 2017, the nominees list is populated with plenty of familiar names (and some winners) from previous years.
Garth Brooks won Entertainer of the Year in 2016 for the first time since the 1990s. Will he be victorious again, or will 2015's Entertainer of the Year, Luke Bryan, make a comeback?
It could be neither: Also in the running for Entertainer of the Year at the 2017 CMA Awards are Eric Church, Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban. All three are strong contenders -- perhaps one of them will win instead?
Who do you think should win Entertainer of the Year at the 2017 CMA Awards? Vote in the poll below as often as once per hour through the end of the day on Nov. 5; The Boot will use the answers in our readers vs. staff predictions a few days prior to the ceremony.
The 2017 CMA Awards are scheduled to air on ABC on Nov. 8, at 8PM ET; the ceremony will take place live at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will host the ceremony for the 10th year in a row.
