2018 CMA Awards is on its way to take place on November 14th, Bloggers and Micro-Bloggers have already started their fest of assumptions and predictions throughout the internet. As there are hundreds of online and social media polls and voting to decide who’s going to win the Album of Year, Entertainer of the Year & frankly Female Vocalist of The Year! But there are also some pieces of information out there which are affecting this festival of assumptions and predictions so hard.
Entertainer Of The Year
- Eric Church
- Chris Stapleton
- Keith Urban
- Garth Brooks
- Luke Bryan
Should Win: Garth Brooks
So, here are some few things for all my awards predictions,
Brooks has won a record 22 Academy of Country Music Awards and received a total of 47 overall nominations. His 13 Grammy Award nominations have resulted in 2 awards won, along with Billboard Music Awards, Country Music Association Awards, and many others.
Brooks is the biggest star of the modern era of country music and has dominated the genre for decades, ever since his emergence in the late ’80s. He’s sold more units than any other artist, he has endless hits, and he’s played to more fans over a longer period of time than any other EOTY nominee.
He Adore His Fans So Much
Popularity of Some of His Evergreen Songs
The veteran country star has changed with the times, ultimately coming around to embrace social media and digital music after years of resistance. As a result, Garth Brooks’ music is being introduced to yet another generation of fans … which is just one more reason why he deserves to win Entertainer of the Year at the 2017 CMA Awards.
You’ll notice that with my should win selections that I’m kind of basing it on singles. That is the case other than with Entertainer, which I base on the live show reputation.
I’m a big believer that what drives the music industry with the fans is the single. Hit singles are what we remember. Maybe not necessarily a number one or collection of number ones, but memorable singles. Songs that hit home today, mark the time we’re in and that we remember 20 years from now.
Anyway, Garth Brooks has been the best entertainer in country music the last couple years. Ever since he came back. He’s just on another level.
And that’s saying something because everyone on this list and many that aren’t on this list are amazing live performers.
Keith Urban is like a modern rockstar when you see him live.
