While we’re happy for all of this year’s nominees there were a few names left off the list that were pretty surprising.
Most notably Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean!
The guys had NO love from the CMAs this year and were shut out of both Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist.

Also missing Chris Young, Dustin Lynch and Mitchell Tenpenny
hmmm was this a veiled reference this morning’s nominations?
I understand @kanyewest now.

Fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment
So disagree with the CMA noms this morning!
Will I still watch though I’m angry? Probably so.

Chris Young, Scotty McCreery, Luke Bryan and Rascal Flatts getting snubbed makes me really not want to watch the CMA Awards.
