George Strait competes against admirers for CMA Entertainer of the Year

NASHVILLE (AP) - George Strait knows he got one vote for entertainer of the year at the Country Music Association Awards. He voted for himself. Strait says he had a great year and any time he gets nominated it's special, but he's still nervous. He's competing for that award against Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton -- and any of them would be happy if Strait won as well. Swift says Strait let her open his shows when she was just 17 and she still gets a text from him now and then wishing her well. Shelton says two artists will be viewed as having the greatest influence on country music: Hank Williams Senior and Strait. The CMAs will be tonight in Nashville and air live on ABC.
