Why George Strait Is the ACM Entertainer of the Year
By Kurt Wolff
During the 49th annual Academy of Country Music Awards last night (April 6), George Strait showed that while he may be winding down his final concert tour this spring, the cowboy isn’t ready to ride away just yet. The laid-back, Wrangler-wearing country legend took home the night’s most coveted trophy, for the ACM Entertainer of the Year.
You could argue that Strait was on the list with those other Entertainer of the Year nominees in honor not just of his success the previous 12 months but throughout his entire career.
So with that in mind, and considering the massive successes the other nominees achieved last year, did Strait truly deserve to be named the ACM Entertainer of the Year?
