After years and years of shitting the bed, the CMA voters finally crowned Eric with his first ever Entertainer of the Year award.
Beating out Luke Combs, who took home Album and Male Vocalist, along with Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, and Thomas Rhett, Eric it’s been a long time coming for Eric, and his fans, who have been lobbying harder than anybody for it.
Eric capped his acceptance speech off with message on unity and how music is the answer, politics is not.
"It's gonna be music that brings us out of this. That is the one thing that is gonna save the entire world. Politicians are about division, music is about unity."
