Vote Now: Who Should Win the CMA Entertainer of the Year Award

Vote Now: Who Should Win the CMA Entertainer of the Year Award

In the lead-up to the CMA Awards on Nov. 2, Nash Country Daily will be conducting its own election to let you—the readers—decide who should win each of the 12 categories at this year’s show. We’re taking politics out of the equation and letting the popular vote speak for itself.

The good news is there is no voter registration. The bad news is we aren’t giving out any trophies. It’s just for bragging rights.

Every two or three days, we will provide a new ballot for one of the 12 categories and allow fans to vote until the next category is announced. Along the way, we’ll post our winners.
