The 2018 CMA Awards Winners Predictions Are In!
It's the most wonderful time of the year....
No, not the fact that the holidays start next week, it's CMA szn! The 2018 CMAs are back tonight at 8pm on ABC. We think we have a pretty good idea who's got the best shot at taking home some of these beloved titles.
Read below for our most educated guesses.
Entertainer Of The Year
Winner Prediction: Jason Aldean
We're predicting Jason Aldean since he's had such a stellar 2018. With the birth of his son in late 2017, the release of his new album 'Rearview Town' in April, and his 2018, he's got all the ingredients.
We'll see if he pulls through.
Male Vocalist of the Year
Winner Prediction: Chris Stapleton
Chris Stapleton's new album is bar-none. His sound stands alone. If not Chris Stapleton, Thomas Rhett will probably walk with the trophy.
Female Vocalist Of The Year
Winner Prediction: Carrie Underwood
The obvious choice is our girl Carrie, but Jahna Michal thinks Maren Morris should win since she's had hit after hit. Do you agree?
Vocal Group Of The Year
Winner Prediction: Old Dominion
You couldn't go one week without an update on Old Dominion this year. They had an epic tour, some awesome music, and some hilarious social media threads. They're definitely gunning for the top spot.
Vocal Duo of the Year
Winner Prediction: Dan + Shay
You can't deny all the success Dan + Shay had this year. Not to mention, they're song 'Tequila' was basically the anthem of the summer.
New Artist of the Year
Winner Prediction: Luke Combs
Another fan favorite, Luke Combs, will most likely walk with the New Artist of the Year title. He's such a breath of fresh air. There aren't many out there that don't like Luke.
Album of the Year
Winner Prediction: Life Changes by Thomas Rhett
It's either going to be Thomas Rhett's album or Chris Stapleton's From a Room: Volume 2. It's a toss up between these two for Male Vocalist, too.
Single Of The Year
Winner Prediction: Tequila by Dan + Shay
Dan + Shay's 'Tequila' was so big, it even crossed over into the pop scene.
Song of the Year
Winner Prediction: Drunk Girl
Chris Janson's 'Drunk Girl' has a great shot at Song of the Year. Those lyrics, though... I mean, how do you not tear up?
Musical Event of the Year
Winner Prediction: "Drowns The Whiskey"
Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert's "Drowns The Whiskey" was , hands down, the best collab of the year. It's true country, through and through.
Music Video of the Year
Winner Prediction: Cry Pretty
Carrie Underwood's "Cry Pretty" is a tribute to her struggle after her fall. It's super emotional and a beautiful demonstration of learning to love the skin you're in.
Musician of the Year
Winner Predictions: Derek Wells
Derek Wells had a busy 2018! His work includes playing guitar for Dan + Shay, Kenny Chesney, Kid Rock, Jordan Davis, and Scotty McCreery (to name a few)!
