As reported yesterday, Miranda Lambert leads the nominations for the CMA Awards coming up on November 8, with five nominations. This is on the back of the critical and commercial success of her latest double album The Weight of These Wings, which featured tracks like 'Tin Man', 'We Should Be Friends' and 'Vice'. The singer actually managed to get a nomination in every category that she was eligible for except one. The prestigeous 'Entertainer of the Year'.
The nominees for 'Entertainer of the Year' are: Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban. Two things you notice immediately in that list is the absence of multiple ACM 'Entertainer of the Year' winner Jason Aldean. Also, the distinct lack of females.
Currently, the representation of females on US country radio is considered a hot topic. Miranda Lambert is a great example as to how they are seemingly getting snubbed with her album being a commercial success and yet none of her songs have managed to crack the Top 20 most played on radio.
So the question is in this weeks Kix Poll, was Miranda Lambert robbed of a nomination for Entertainer of the Year?
