POLL: Who Should Win Entertainer of the Year at the 2014 CMA Awards?
It's the grand finale of the evening. The award everyone's waiting for: Entertainer of the Year. There are five extremely talented, well-loved, highly successful nominees, but only one gleaming trophy. Who will claim the top honor at the 2014 CMA Awards?
In 2013, George Strait was named Entertainer of the Year, and Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton were in the mix of possible winners. Strait has been nominated for the award 19 times (!) and claimed it three. This is Bryan's second year in a row being up for the award, and Shelton's been on the ballot four times, winning it in 2012.
This year, Miranda Lambert -- current queen of country music -- and Keith Urban are contenders too. Lambert was a hopeful in 2010, and Urban won the top honor in 2005 and has been nominated a total of eight times.
All of these artists have seen extreme success in country music. They have frenzied tours and best-selling records and are clearly some of the industry's biggest stars. Each individual brings a different flair, vocal style and range of hits to the country music table ... but who will add a trophy to their mantle at home? (Lambert and Shelton together have a better chance since they share the same mantle, obviously!)
