George Strait Has At Least One Vote For Entertainer of the Year
George Strait Has At Least One Vote For Entertainer of the Year

George Strait is the most nominated artist in CMA history and before he ends his career on the road, he has a chance to win his third Entertainer of the Year trophy.  George won his first two in 1989 and 1990.

There are over 6,000 CMA voters and George is sure he has at least one vote, “Of course I voted for myself,” Strait said when meeting with reporters Monday. “I always vote for myself. I figure everybody does, why wouldn’t I? It’s such an honor. It’s been a while. We had a great year, it really was a great year, and any time you get nominated for entertainer of the year, which is the award of the night, it’s very, very special. I’m excited about it. I’ll be very nervous that night.”

George is up against, Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean for the biggest award of the night.  Each of those artists have opened for George at some point in their career.

For me, this is the TOUGHEST category to predict this year.  I’m definitely glad I didn’t have to vote for just one of them.  Can’t wait to see what happens!!

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood host the 47th Annual CMA Awards, November 6th on ABC.
