It’s CMA Awards week, the biggest week in country music.
The spray tans are being applicated. The performances are being rehearsed. The after-parties are being RSVP’d to. And for some, the acceptance speeches are being written.
I think the rankings will drastically change after this week. I am very curious to see who pulls off a win in the coveted Entertainer of the Year category, as well as the Album of the Year category. You can click HERE to see my predictions on who will win in each category this year.
Now, on to the rankings! Luke Combs takes back the No. 1 spot simply because every one of his songs are being streamed/downloaded at a crazy fast rate. Sam Hunt makes a big jump and Brantley Gilbert climbs a spot, thanks to having No. 1 song at country radio. Also this week, Blake Shelton makes his debut in the rankings at No. 21.
Last rankings until the CMA Awards! Enjoy!
Artists Falling Out of the Top 25:
Dustin Lynch, Tim McGraw, Russell Dickerson
