Today I'm thinking about the ACMs coming up on April 18th.
The Academy of country Music Awards' Entertainer of the Year category has changed this year. It's still fan-voted like it has been the last couple of years, but there are now 8 nominees instead of 5.
Some of the nominees have been campaigning for your vote, but not Brad Paisley, "I'm uncomfortable campaigning - to be honest with you - because I don't like that part of it. I understand that people love to get involved and that's cool that they can. I just...vote for who you want. If you're happy with somebody's show last year and you had a great time vote for them. If that's me, that's great! If it's not, I will stand up and clap for whoever wins, you know?"
The seven other nominees for the ACM's Entertainer of the Year are Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, George Strait and Taylor Swift, as well as Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Zac Brown Band. The ACM Awards will air April 18th on CBS live from Las Vegas.
