Luke Combs would be pumped to get another ACM Entertainer of the Year Award, but he might not get his own vote.

Luke Combs Shares Who Should Win 2024 ACM Entertainer of the Year

I recently sat down with the "Where the Wild Things Are" singer, who is up for this year's ACM EOY award, and I asked him who does he think will win the award this year.

It's important to note two things:

  • I made Combs take himself out of the running for this question.
  • Combs asked if we wanted his opinion on who he thinks should win, or who he thinks will win.

Opting to hear who the country superstar thinks should win, we got a pretty juicy answer from Combs:

"I think Kane Brown. I think that he has never gotten the recognition that I think that he deserves. And I think that he works really hard, and I think that it'd be really cool to see him take it home."

Has Kane Brown Ever Won an ACM Award?

Brown has been nominated for an ACM Award nine times so far in his career. Out of those nine nominations, Brown has won just one ACM Award, for Video of the Year for his hit song, "Worldwide Beautiful" in 2021.

2024's ACM Awards, which air on Amazon Prime on May 16, 2024, at 8PM ET, will be the first in which Brown has made the illustrious Entertainer of the Year ballot.

He has some stiff competition this year in that lane.

In other Combs news, he just announced that he has a new song on the way called "Ain’t No Love in Oklahoma," which comes out May 16 at 8AM ET. It is part of the movie Twisters, out in theaters on May 19.
