CMA Awards 2021 Winners: The full list of winners and nominees for Entertainer of the Year and other awards

Nashville, Tenn. Country stars Chris Stapleton and Eric Church will compete against each other at tonight’s Country Music Association Awards, with both competing in the same five categories, including Artist of the Year.

In the nominations announced in September, Stapleton earned nominations for Male Vocalist, Album of the Year, Single and Song of the Year, and could receive additional awards as producer on his album and single. Church, who released a three-part album in April called “Heart and Soul,” received five nominations.

They join Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Luke Combs as the nominees for the year. Lambert, who was also nominated for a Female Singer and Musical Event Award, was already the most-nominated artist in CMA history and is now tied with Brad Paisley for third place in the overall nominations, CMA.
