Live Act of the Year – 2015 Taste of Country Awards
The Live Act of the Year category is bound to be one of the most hotly-contested in the 2015 Taste of Country Awards.
Some of country's top stars had amazing road runs in 2014, including George Strait, who finished off his touring career with a huge run of shows including a final night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, which drew more than 104,000 fans. Luke Bryan also brought in enormous crowds on his That's My Kind of Night Tour, including stadium dates, and so did Jason Aldean, who partnered with Major League Baseball for a run of stadium dates, as well as selling out the biggest amphitheaters in the country on his Burn It Down Tour.
One of the biggest touring stories of the year was Garth Brooks, who returned to the road after an absence of 13 years and sold out multiple dates in every city he played. Eric Church solidified his spot as one of country's most consistent seat-fillers, and Keith Urban had another huge year on the road, while Dierks Bentley made the transition from hard-working act on the road to one of country's multi-act headliners, hitting the pavement in the headlining slot with a roster of acts that included Chris Young, Chase Rice and Jon Pardi.
Carrie Underwood won Live Act of the Year in 2014. Which one of this year's contenders will get your vote? You can vote below as often as once an hour until the poll closes at 11:59PM ET on Monday, Feb. 2.
