2016 Golden Boot Awards: Vote Now for the Living Legend Award
The Golden Boot Awards, The Boot’s fan-voted digital awards, are back for a third year in 2016. Each of this year's eight categories features staff-selected nominees who made waves in the country music world from May 2015 through April 2016. Readers can vote for their favorites in each category as often as once per hour through 11:59PM ET on June 5. We'll announce the winners on the site the following Monday (June 6).
Many a country icon fits the qualifications for the Living Legend Award; as readers will see in the poll below, there are more nominees in this category than in any other in the Golden Boot Awards.
In 2015, Alan Jackson won the title with almost 40 percent of the votes, and he's again on the roster of nominees in 2016. Returning nominees include Glen Campbell, Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, the Oak Ridge Boys, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, George Strait and Randy Travis.
New to the ballot this year are some of country's most beloved stars: Loretta Lynn, Kris Kristofferson, Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire and Charlie Daniels. With names like these in contention, it's almost impossible to pick a winner -- but, it must be done.
