MusicRow.com has just posted an industry poll on the home page. Vote anonymously and tell us who you think will take home the big prize at next week’s CMA Awards. A new fan poll by CMT.com says Taylor Swift will win Entertainer of the Year on Nov. 11.
If Swift wins, she’ll become the youngest artist ever to win Entertainer and join an elite group of only six other women ― the Dixie Chicks, Loretta Lynn, Barbara Mandrell, Dolly Parton, Reba and Shania Twain ― who have received the CMA’s highest honor. A win in this category would also mark the first win for a female since the Dixie Chicks took the top prize in 2000.
CMT commissioned its annual poll using a random sample of 1,000 country music fans ages 18 and older. Complete CMT poll results are as follows:
1) Entertainer of the Year – Taylor Swift
2) Album of the Year – Taylor Swift’s Fearless
3) Song of the Year – Carrie Underwood’s “I Told You So” written by Randy Travis
4) Female Vocalist of the Year – Taylor Swift
5) Male Vocalist of the Year – George Strait
6) Vocal Group of the Year – Rascal Flatts
7) Vocal Duo of the Year – Brooks and Dunn
CMT goes live with its annual, exclusive coverage of the CMA Awards Red Carpet on Wednesday, November 11 at 7:00-8:00 p.m., ET/PT.
