POLL: Who Should Win Album of the Year at the 2018 CMA Awards?
The 2018 CMA Awards will take place on Nov. 14, but before the all-star party at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena for the 52nd annual event, The Boot wants to know who our readers think will go home with the awards in each of the show's 12 categories. We've rounded up the details on all of the nominees, from Musician of the Year to Entertainer of the Year, and we want your input.
The Album of the Year trophy is awarded to both the artist(s) and the producer(s) of the winning project. In 2017, Chris Stapleton and Dave Cobb took home the award for From A Room, Vol.1, and this year, they're back in the running for the sequel, From A Room, Vol. 2.
Kacey Musgraves is the only female artist to receive a nomination in this category; she's up for her album Golden Hour, which was produced by Musgraves, Ian Fitchuk and Daniel Tashian. Graffiti U, Keith Urban's collaboration-rich album is also nominated; it was produced by an all-star armada of power producers, including Urban, Greg Wells, Benny Blanco, Jimmy Robbins, Ross Copperman, Dann Huff and more.
Thomas Rhett made it to Album of the Year nominees list with his Life Changes album, produced by Rhett, Julian Bunetta, Jesse Frasure, Dann Huff and Joe London. The Mountain by Dierks Bentley is also in the running, with producers Ross Copperman, Jon Randall Stewart and Arturo Buenahora Jr. at the helm.
