POLL: Who Should Win Single of the Year at the 2017 CMA Awards?
The 2017 CMA Awards will take place on Nov. 8, but before the stars align at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena for the 51st annual event, The Boot wants to know who our readers think will go home with the awards in each of the show's 12 categories. We've rounded up the details on all of the nominees, from Musician of the Year to Entertainer of the Year, and we want your input.
So many great singles have emerged on the country music scene in the last 12 months.
"Body Like a Back Road" by Sam Hunt broke a 55-year-old record for hanging on to the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart in 2017 -- yeah, we'd say that deserves a nomination for Single of the Year! But Little Big Town's "Better Man" (which the country quartet performed at the CMA Awards ceremony last year) is also a worthy contender, as is "Tin Man," one of the songs from Miranda Lambert's The Weight of These Wings album.
Also nominated for Single of the Year at the 2017 CMA Awards is Jon Pardi's "Dirt on My Boots," a classic honky-tonk tune with enough Pardi flair to make it stand out in a crowd. The category's final nominee is "Blue Ain't Your Color" by Keith Urban, a tune that also received a nomination for Music Video of the Year at this year's CMAs.
