There is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that King George’s rise to the top of the CMA’s was long overdue.

He definitely paved the way for so many country artists. And there are many other artists from the other genres  who recognize the clout that he carries.

Before George there were many others who stood in the circle and gave thanks to everyone for their support in helping them achieve their particular milestone.  Today we look back at some of the past CMA Entertainer’s of the Year. Join me starting at 5am!
