However, the singer was left disappointed when she announced the list, as well as many country fans around the world.

Why McEntire is not happy?

The leaders in the top categories are Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban. However, there were no female artists nominated for the Entertainer Of The Year.

McEntire noted that there were no women in the category and later commented:

It doesn’t make me very happy because we’ve got some very talented women out there who are working their butts off. I’m missing my girlfriends on this list.

The country superstar was nominated for the Entertainer of the Year not one, not two, but nine times in total and won the award in 1994. Her criticism was supported by social media users who took to Twitter to share their opinion.

What did people say?

People’s disapproval is not surprising. There is a common belief that female singers are boxed out of country music. But we still hope that the situation will change one day.
