The competition for Entertainer of the Year at the 2015 CMA Awards is packed with some of country's biggest and brightest stars, and it's hard to say whose name will be called when the category is announced at this year's ceremony.
Toby Keith received his first guitar at the age of eight, and since then, he's gone on to sell over 40 million records worldwide. Now, The Boot has a chance for fans to win a Takamine EF250TK Toby Keith Signature guitar, designed and signed by the "Red Solo Cup" hitmaker himself.
Carrie Underwood is set to release her new album, Storyteller, on Oct. 23, but her fans don't have to wait until then to hear one of the singer's new tracks. Underwood has released a video to share the song "Heartbeat."
At last year's CMA Awards, Miranda Lambert's Platinum was the winner of Album of the Year, which is given to the artist and the producer. But this time around, there's a brand-new roster of artists nominated for the big prize. Who do you think will come out ahead?
While maintaining an inimitable knack for telling stories through his songs, Corb Lund has pushed himself -- both musically and personally -- on his latest studio album, Things That Can't Be Undone, out now via New West Records. Working with producer Dave Cobb brought with it a new creative process, and the result -- a beautiful blend of classic country and Americana sounds -- might just be, as it stands right now, Lund's masterpiece.
Scotty McCreery was thrust into the spotlight in 2011, when he was crowned the Season 10 winner of American Idol. Since then, he has released two studio albums, plus a Christmas album, and has toured with artists such as Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts, as well as headlined his own shows. Still, the 22-year-old concedes that the idea of people being interested in his personal life is difficult for him to understand.
A common theme in country music this past year has been "let the girls play," and thanks to the #SaladGate controversy, one thing has become clear: Country music fans want to hear the genre's female artists. These five country ladies nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2015 CMA Awards are just a few of the genre's beloved voices.
