Carrie Underwood is having another incredible year. The Season 4 American Idol winner was just nominated for Entertainer of the Year at the CMA Awards. A female has not won this award since 2011. Can Underwood beat out the heavy-hitters and bring home the trophy?


Underwood has been working non-stop throughout the pandemic to give her fans great music. Her My Gift album picked up a win at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards. She collaborated with John Legend on the song “Hallelujah.” The duo won Video of the Year at the 2021 CMT Music Awards. She also released “I Wanna Remember” with Needtobreathe this year.

Will Carrie Underwood Win a CMA Award After Having a Huge Year?

The “Before He Cheats” singer will be launching a Las Vegas residency in December. She just collaborated with Dan + Shay on a cover of “Only Us” for the Dear Evan Hansen film. Just as her CMA nomination was announced, Underwood’s music video for “If I Didn’t Love You” with Jason Aldean dropped on YouTube. She is more than deserving of being named the Entertainer of the Year at the November ceremony.

“Carrie should win it but it will probably go to a guy,” one of Underwood’s fans wrote on Twitter.


Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Luke Combs, and Chris Stapleton are also nominated for the CMA Entertainer of the Year. Church won last year. Taylor Swift was the last female artist to win this award. The awards are voted for by members of the Country Music Association. If fans had the opportunity to vote, Underwood would most likely take the award home. Combs and Church probably have the best shot at winning based on the voting pattern of the past few years.

“If Carrie doesn’t win it’s a joke, but this awards show is a complete joke anyway. So …” another person wrote on Twitter.

Many tweeted comments asking why Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton were not nominated for this award. Both have been rolling out new music while balancing their time on their respective talent competition shows. Bryan was nominated for Musical Event of the year for his collaboration with Jordan Davis. Shelton was snubbed entirely.
