The Entertainer of the Year category is historically the biggest award and generally is filled with men. Last year, Reba said she was disappointed that no women were nominated in the category. This year, Carrie Underwood received a nomination for the coveted category. Others include Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Luke Combs, and Thomas Rhett.
