2017 Golden Boot Awards: Vote Now for the Living Legend Award
Welcome to the fourth annual Golden Boot Awards! The Boot’s fan-voted digital awards, the Golden Boot Awards will, in 2017, feature 10 categories of staff-selected nominees who made waves in the country music world between May 2016 and April 2017. Readers can vote for their preferred winner in each category as often as once per hour through 11:59PM ET on June 4. We’ll announce the winners on the site the following Monday (June 5).
Alan Jackson has taken home the Golden Boot Awards Living Legend honor for the past two years, which is quite a feat considering the company he keeps with the category’s group of nominees. In addition to Jackson, coming back as contenders this year in the GBAs’ most heavily populated category are Glen Campbell, Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, the Oak Ridge Boys, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, George Strait, Randy Travis, Loretta Lynn, Kris Kristofferson, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire and Charlie Daniels. Three new, but not surprising, additions to the Living Legend Award’s nominees roster for 2017 are the great Clint Black, John Prine and Shania Twain.
With this many icons of country music to choose from, the decision will be tough — but let’s be honest, there’s really no wrong answer! Make your pick for 2017’s Living Legend Award recipient in the poll below.
