    Having seen all the Entertainer nominees with the exception of George Strait, my vote goes to Keith Urban. He puts on an incredible show. It is simply amazing to me that this award continues to be an exclusive all boys club. Last year after Tim McGraw & Faith Hill had their major successful tour, he was nominated & she wasn't. What's up with that?
