Ahead of the release of this year's official CMAs 'Entertainer of the Year' nominees, country superstar Garth Brooks stepped forward to pull his possible nomination to make room for the next artist in line.
Brooks, who has grabbed the coveted award seven times over his career (2019, 2017, 2016, 1998, 1997, 1992, and 1991) says he was motivated by a Tweet that asked why he couldn't simply step aside this year, and he wholeheartedly agreed.
"I'm going to enjoy it this year more than I ever have," he told reporters.
The 2020 CMA Awards will air live on ABC on November 11th. Hosts and co-hosts for the show have not yet been announced.
