This is the big one! The Taste of Country Fan Choice Award for Entertainer of the Year recognizes the artists the fans think had the best year in 2018. Critics and music industry insiders are just as good Grandma at home in Chillicothe, Ohio, in our awards.

So who is it going to be?

2018 CMA Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban is nominated, but so are Blake Shelton, Eric Church and Carrie Underwood — three superstars who weren't nominated for the CMA this year. Kane Brown is the underdog people's champion, and Dan + Shay had arguably the biggest song of 2018 and proved to even bigger audiences that their live show is legit. Garth Brooks and Luke Bryan also make up this category. It's a Fan Choice Awards category full of star power, but you've probably decided who to choose by now, haven't you?

So, what are you waiting for? Vote, share, maybe vote again ... hey we're not checking IDs or crying about voter fraud during this election. The 2018 Taste of Country Fan Choice Awards are the country fan's only choice for deciding who the best artists are and which songs made this year memorable. Voting will last through Dec. 16 at 11:59PM ET. The winners will be announced on Dec. 17.
