Who Will Win Entertainer of the Year at the 2022 CMA Awards?

Winning Entertainer of the Year is considered to be the highest honor in country music. The recipient of this award is thought to have represented country music the best out of all of its peers for that year. While each nominee is well deserving of this award, only one can win.

Luke Combs

Combs is the reigning Entertainer of the Year, having won in 2021. He released his third album Growin' Up in June of this year and performed several stadium shows. Combs also saw two singles reach No. 1 with "Doin This" and "The Kind Of Love We Make." While appearing on popular podcasts, Combs even admitted that he and Morgan Wallen appear to be the biggest names in country music today. Let's see if Combs can win back-to-back years.

Carrie Underwood

Underwood has been nominated for this award several times, and rightfully so. She is often hailed as one of the brightest stars in country music with her stadium-sized voice; Underwood has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame after all. 2022 saw the singer release her album Denim & Rhinestones, launch a highly anticipated tour, and give wowing performances at award shows. With a vocal talent to rival the greats and a recognizable brand, this may be the year Underwood snags the award.
