Let's start with the big one, "Entertainer Of The Year".  I have questioned how Chris Stapleton has been winning all of these awards for his "Traveler" album. And now he's up for entertainer. He's had ONE song. One. And how is Dierks Bentley NOT nominated?!

I think that he's got a great voice, but the way it USED to work was you had SEVERAL songs chart, your album sold well and you played a ton of concerts. But never with just ONE song.

Nominees for Single and Song have several of the same songs nominated. That's why I think Maren Morris' "My Church" will be the Single, and "Die A Happy Man" will be the winner for song.

The Vocal Duo category has historically been a runaway that's dominated by one duo for a lengthy period. (Judds, Brooks & Dunn).  Florida Georgia Line looks like they've got it locked.

The Video Of The Year. Well, I haven't seen any of them. And I hate the fact there's even an award for this category. But, that's just me.
