Many incredible country artists are up for nomination this year. Kane Brown, Luke Combs, Jelly Roll, Cody Johnson, Chris Stapleton, Morgan Wallen and Lainey Wilson are all nominated for entertainer of the year. 

Wallen’s nominations come amid legal troubles for the singer. Following an incident in which he allegedly threw a chair from a Nashville, Tennessee, rooftop bar, he was arrested and charged with three felony counts of reckless endangerment and one of disorderly conduct, according to the Metro Nashville Police Department.
