Keith Urban is the CMA’s reigning Entertainer of the Year and he’s nominated for the honor once again at the CMAs which take place this week.

Last year (2018), Keith could not have been more happy backstage after his big win. He said, “It’s an indescribable feeling to get that tonight, because I love playing, I love entertaining, I love putting on shows. I started playing guitar when I was six, so playing, and I came up playing in the clubs – four hours a night, five hours a night, five nights a week. I wasn’t writing songs.”

He added, “I was just schlepping my gear and playing cover tunes and learning my craft. To get to play three or four hours a night of original material is the most extraordinary feeling.”

The CMA Awards will air live from Nashville on November 13th at 7pm CT on ABC.
