Here are who I think will win this year, this is not necessarily who I think should…

Entertainer of the Year

Jason Aldean
Garth Brooks
Luke Bryan
Miranda Lambert
Eric Church

Been wrong all year… but I’m sticking with Garth Brooks here! No one had a bigger year on tour…

Male Vocalist of the Year

Jason Aldean
Eric Church
Brett Eldredge
Chris Stapleton
Dierks Bentley

This is a hard one for me this go around. As much as I have been flying the Chris Stapleton flag all year, and would love to see him pick up another W, I think Brett Eldridge had a monster year on the charts and put out some great music.

Female Vocalist of the Year

Kelsea Ballerini
Jana Kramer
Miranda Lambert
Kacey Musgraves
Carrie Underwood

Love Kelsea and everything that she did this year to death but I think my wife-in-law Carrie Underwood grab another one here.

Vocal Duo of the Year

Brothers Osborne
Dan + Shay
Florida Georgia Line
Maddie + Tae
Joey + Rory

Joey + Rory would make a great story, The Bros had one of my favorite songs and albums of the year, but its too hard for me to vote against FGL to take this again.

Vocal Group of the Year

Eli Young Band
Little Big Town
Rascal Flatts
Old Dominion
Zac Brown Band

I think that LBT ride the Girl Crush success to grab this one.

Album of the Year

Eric Church, Mr. Misunderstood
Sam Hunt, Montevallo
Thomas Rhett, Tangled Up
Chris Young, I’m Comin’ Over
Chris Stapleton, Traveller

Said it when it came out last year, Traveller was the BEST album out PERIOD!

Single Record of the Year

“Burning House,” Cam
“Buy Me a Boat,” Chris Janson
“Die a Happy Man,” Thomas Rhett
“Girl Crush,” Little Big Town
“I’m Comin’ Over,” Chris Young
“Take Your Time,” Sam Hunt

I say it will come down to Girl Crush and Die a Happy Man.

Video of the Year

“Biscuits,” Kacey Musgraves
“Burning House,” Cam
“Girl Crush,” Little Big Town
“Mr. Misunderstood,” Eric Church
“Riser,” Dierks Bentley

None of these really stand out, but Cam actually caught on fire while filming Burning House so I’ll give it to her!

Song of the Year

“Burning House,” Cam
“Girl Crush,” Little Big Town
“Nobody to Blame,” Chris Stapleton
“Raise ‘Em Up,” Keith Urban feat. Eric Church
“She Don’t Love You,” Eric Paslay

Girl Crush, but glad Eric Paslay got a nomination here.

Vocal Event of the Year

“Hangover Tonight,” Gary Allan (Feat. Chris Stapleton)
“Home Alone Tonight,” Luke Bryan (Feat. Karen Fairchild)
“Raise ‘Em Up,” Keith Urban (Feat. Eric Church)
“Smokin’ and Drinkin’,” Miranda Lambert (Feat. Little Big Town)
“Wild Child,” Kenny Chesney (Feat. Grace Potter)

Home Alone Tonight was by far the most successful, so I’ll go with Luke and Karen.
