Five artists are competing to be named Entertainer of the Year at the 2012 ACM Awards on April 1. Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton have all had years worthy of the honor, but only one can bring the trophy home. Your votes will help decide the winner.

Female artists have snagged the Entertainer of the Year prize at the last three ACM red carpet events, after being dominated by male artists -- specifically Chesney and Toby Keith -- for many years. In 2012, Swift is hoping to repeat that trend, while Chesney is looking to win his fifth time in the category. It's the first nomination in this particular nod category for Shelton, while Aldean and Paisley were nominated in 2011.
