The 55th Academy of Country Music Awards are set to take place on Wednesday, September 16 at the home of country music, Nashville, Tennessee.
The complete list of nominees for the ACM Awards has been revealed and finds a fierce competition amongst the nominees for the most prestigious award, Entertainer of the Year.
Last year’s winner, Keith Urban, is set to host the event this year and will announce Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Thomas Rhett, or Carrie Underwood as the 2020 Entertainer of the Year.
As we countdown the days to the 2020 ACM Awards, we want to hear from you. Cast your vote below on who you think will win the Entertainer of the Year award at the 2020 ACM Awards.
It was a long road, but Bryan’s latest album Born Here Live Here Die Here was finally released on August 7. The first single, “Knockin’ Boots” was released back in April, 2019. The album featured three additional singles prior to its release, “What She Wants Tonight,” “One Margarita,” and “Build Me A Daddy.”
While Church has a new album on the way and a recently released new song called “Stick That In Your Country Song,” it was his 2019 Double Down tour that reinforced his status as a Country music titan. Church would perform 30-plus song shows, often two nights in the same or neighboring cities, and changed up the setlist each night.
Luke Combs is arguably the star of quarantine having performed numerous live streams and releasing powerful songs in reference to the times. His deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get is set for release on October 23 and will feature five brand new songs from Combs.
Rhett’s fourth studio album Center Point Road came out in 2019, but his single “Beer Can’t Fix” alongside Jon Pardi became a Country radio staple in 2020. The music video was released in March, 2020 and provided the perfect virtual escape from the burgeoning pandemic.
This is the third Entertainer of the Year nomination Underwood has received and she’s already been endorsed for the award by one of her fellow nominees. Following her massive Cry Pretty Tour 360 in 2019, Underwood is to release her seventh studio album, and first Christmas album, My Gift on September 25.
