CMA Awards Announces Nominees, Eric Church Amazingly Not Nominated For ‘Entertainer’

The 2015 CMA Awards will air 11/2 in Nashville on ABC. It’s the 50 year anniversary.

My biggest gripe? How THE FUCK did Church not get nominated for Entertainer of the Year – are people OK in the head – have they seen a show? Unreal. I honestly don’t care that he didn’t have an official tour this year. Nope, don’t care. I have a hunch he’ll get it next year.

He was nominated for 5 other awards, though…
