ACM Awards 2011 Entertainer Of The Year [POLL]
Who will win Entertainer of the Year at the 2011 ACM Awards?
The most prestigious award of the ACM Awards is Entertainer of the Year. This is one of three awards that will be given out tonight where the fans select the winners. There is some very stiff competition for the award this year. The nominees are: Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban.
With four guys and only two girls in this ACM Awards category the odds might look a little slanted towards the men, but I have a feeling it will be a woman that wins this year. Carrie Underwood won this award the last two years and Kenny Chesney won it four straight years before that. Since neither of them is nominated it opens the field up a little. However, Toby Keith has won the award twice before in 2002 and 2003.
Things were different back then though. Back then this award was decided by the members of the Academy of Country Music (ACM). Now this award is voted on by the fans so it is a whole different ballgame. Instead of using specific criteria to decide who would win the award it is now simply a popularity contest. I think that fact alone will eliminate Brad Paisley, Toby Keith and Keith Urban. They are all very popular, but not as popular as the remaining nominees.
Of the three remaining nominees I think ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year award is Taylor Swift’s to lose. Her fan base made up mostly of younger girls who are very tech savvy and will get online to vote for her. She is also in the midst of having a huge album out and a massive world tour so she is in the news a lot. Add in that she wrote her entire new record herself and I think it will lend her a little credibility that others have not given her in the past. All of that adds up to what is likely a win for Taylor.
If Taylor doesn’t win then I think it will be Miranda Lambert who won this award last year. Either way, the guys may outnumber the girls 2:1 in this category, but I think it is going to be a girl’s night at the ACM’s to take this one home.
You can tune in at 8PM tonight on CBS to see it all go down and find out for yourself who wins at the 2011 ACM Awards.
