Carrie Underwood fans are putting the CMAs on serious blast and claiming that the singer was “snubbed” of the prestigious Entertainer of the Year award during the 50th Annual CMA Awards on October 2.
Underwood, who was nominated for the prestigious country music award alongside eventual winner Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton, and Keith Urban, missed out on the award after receiving her first ever nomination in the category, and Carrie’s fans are not happy.
A number of social media users took to Twitter to slam the CMAs for failing to acknowledge Underwood’s stellar year, blasting the Country Music Association and claiming that they “snubbed” Underwood, who co-hosted the 50th anniversary of the award show with Brad Paisley.
“[Carrie] should’ve been EOTY as well based on criteria,” Twitter user @ATweetForCallie hit back at the CMAs after Entertainer of the Year was awarded to Garth Brooks. “CMA’s a joke with WME Block/running show.”
