Has Dierks Bentley Already Lost His CMA Award Category?

Has Dierks Bentley Already Lost His CMA Award Category?

Dierks Bentley is nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year at tonight’s CMA Awards.  It’s not the first time Dierks has gotten the nod, but he feels like he has a prtty good idea that he won’t win the category.

Eric Church, Chris Stapleton, Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton received the other nominations in the category. It sounds like Dierks is fairly confident that Blake is going to win.

“It’s good to be nominated. I mean, there’s only five people that get that nomination for Male Vocalist so it feels good. It’ll feel good all up until they announce Blake Shelton has won it and then it won’t feel so good. That’s the way it usually goes down the last five, six years . . . well, deservedly so. He’s a great singer, but I am basking in the nomination right now currently, so I like the pre-CMA stuff cause you get to like really milk the nominations and then it’s not so good afterwards, but it feels good now.”

The CMA Awards will air live from the Bridgestone Arena at 7:00 PM (CT) on ABC.
