Luke Bryan is again nominated in the Entertainer of the Year category at the 2020 Academy of Country Music Awards, which will be held on April 5.

Having won Entertainer Of The Year from both the ACMs and the CMAs, Bryan told us just what having the award means to him. He said, “The title is what it is, you know? I mean, my focus in life when I’m on stage is entertaining these fans. If it’s my smile and my demeanor, if it’s my song that does it, if it’s me picking up a child out of the audience and letting them sing, it’s not being so premeditated that you can see it from a mile away.”

He adds, “My main thing is be a fan up there that just gets to sing. That’s kind of how I’ve always approached it, and being called the Entertainer of the Year makes me want to do that to the best of my ability every night for the rest of my life as long as I’m on stage. I want people to leave my shows and go, ‘You know what? Whoever’s voting him Entertainer of the Year, they got it right.’”

The 55th Academy of Country Music Awards show, which will be hosted for the first time by Keith Urban, will be broadcast LIVE from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Sunday, April 5 (live 8:00-11:00 PM ET/delayed PT) on the CBS.
