Garth Brooks Wants to Pull His Name from Entertainer of The Year Consideration at CMA Awards 2020

Garth Brooks is pulling his name from consideration in the Entertainer of the Year category at the 2020 CMA Awards.

The 58-year-old country star announced on Wednesday (July 29) during a virtual press conference (via People) that he wants his name to be permanently out of contention, saying “It’s time for somebody else to hold that award.”

Garth has won Entertainer of the Year a record breaking seven times – in 1991, 1992, 1997, 1998, 2016, 2017 and 2019 — but his latest win last year, he says, was “not that fun, to tell you the truth.”

Garth
received a lot of backlash from fans last year, who had hoped that Carrie Underwood or Eric Church would win.

Despite wanting the Country Music Association to no longer consider him, the organization released a statement saying that entertainers can not withdraw from consideration.

“The long-standing CMA Awards rules do not allow individuals to remove themselves from the balloting process at any point,” the CMAs shared in a statement.

If he is nominated again, he is asking CMA members not to vote for him.

“I’m very grateful for the time that I’ve got to go [win],” Garth said, but now, “somebody else needs to hold that.”

Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood Go Into Quarantine After Possible COVID-19 Exposure

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have decided to go into quarantine after they, and their camp, were potentially exposed to coronavirus.

The country couple announced today that they would have to cancel their upcoming Inside Studio G concert as they head into quarantine for precaution.

“Out of an abundance of caution, Garth Brooks is moving his and Trisha Yearwood’s July 7th Facebook concert to a later date and postponing Inside Studio G for 2 weeks,” an announcement read on their official sites.

It continues, “While Garth and Trisha are fine, the Garth/Trisha camp has possibly been exposed to the Covid-19 virus. To be smart about this, they are all quarantining for 2 weeks and thank everyone for their concern.”

While Garth and Trisha are fine at the moment, their choice to go self-isolate is a smart one, given the coronavirus numbers that keep increasing across the nation as businesses and people started to return to “normal”.

At the beginning of the pandemic, Garth and Trisha put on a Facebook Live concert which crashed the site, before hosting it on CBS.

Garth told the fan named Jack that the album is complete, and then he made a big decision.

So there you have it… half of the album is coming very, very soon.

Garth also discussed how he’s struggled with whether it’s okay to be releasing new music during this difficult time for the world. He said, “We’ve had this discussion. I don’t want to be the guy that tries to do something in the midst where everybody is hurtin’. It’s like…damn it. The album’s ready to go. It’s just how do you get out and promote and be happy and jolly while everybody’s out there fighting for their lives not only physically, but fighting for their lives financially.”
