Garth Brooks announced yesterday that he is permanently taking his name out of the running for the CMA Entertainer of the Year Award.

He said he started the discussion with the Country Music Association shortly after the 2019 CMA Awards. Garth beat out Carrie Underwood and Eric Church, who were both favourites to win the award last year. He made the decision after seeing a Tweet that said he should step down from contention for the award in the future. "The last thing I want to do is seem ungrateful," he says. "But it's time for somebody else to hold that award...'cause they're all out there busting their butts." Garth has won the CMA Entertainer of the Year seven times in his career. However, he still wants to be considered for all other CMA Awards and all ACM categories. The Country Music Association said in a statement that voting rules don't allow artists to officially withdraw from award consideration. "If voters have nominated Garth Brooks in the first round, his name will appear on the second ballet," the statement says. "It will then be up to voters in this second round to select their top finalists."
