As we gear up for the 58th Annual ACM Awards tonight (5/11), our minds are on who will win the top award of the night, Entertainer of the Year. This year (2023), there are seven nominees for the top honor, including Kane Brown, Jason Aldean, Luke Combs, Morgan Wallen, Chris Stapleton, and two women, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood.

The show will play out live in Allen, Texas, and it could be a big night for native Texan Miranda, a top nominee with nods for Album of the Year (Palamino), Female Artist, and Singer/ Songwriter of the Year.

Lambert is just one of a handful of women who have won the coveted Entertainer of the Year award. Carrie Underwood, Shania Twain, and Taylor Swift have also won the award. Paving the road for more women to win Entertainer of the Year, we look at the Top Five country music superstar women who have taken home the night’s biggest honor.
