Breaking! CMA Entertainer of the Year Is… Eric Church!

Tonight, November 11th, 2020, The 54th Annual CMA Awards show aired live on ABC. Hosted by Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker, the special show was full of one of a kind moments and epic performances as the country music family honored the highest talents of 2020 celebrating “Country Music’s Biggest Night”.

Ending the three-hour-long show, was the most prestigious award of the night, “Entertainer of the Year. Up for the honor were Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Luke Combs, Eric Church, and Keith Urban. Ultimately taking home the award was Eric Church.

Humbly accepting, Church shared “This award this year, at least for me, has been about the loss of this year. Loss of life, loss of playing shows, loss of freedom, loss of kids being in school… And do you not what the win is? The win is we all are here tonight, together, as country music… in person, live, not on zoom and I think… I believe this, I really believe this, it’s going to be music that brings us out of this. That is the one thing that is going to save the entire world. Politicians are about division, music is about unity.”
