Seven artists are up for Entertainer of the Year at the ACMs this Thursday, including Luke Combs. So, who does HE think should win?

Someone asked and said he wasn’t allowed to pick himself.  The other six nominees are Chris Stapleton, Cody Johnson, Jelly Roll, Kane Brown, Lainey Wilson, and Morgan Wallen.  So, who’d he pick?

He thinks KANE BROWN deserves it most.  Quote, “He has never gotten the recognition that I think that he deserves, [and] he works really hard.”

It’s Kane’s 15th ACM nomination, and he’s only won once.  He took home Video of the Year in 2021 for “Worldwide Beautiful”He also got the ACM International Award last year, but it’s a special award voted on by the board.)

As for Luke, t’s the fifth year in a row he’s been up for Entertainer of the Year, and he’s never won. He leads all ACM nominees this time with eight total nods.
