Why Luke Bryan Should Win ACM Entertainer of the Year Award

(Radio.com) ACM Awards co-host Luke Bryan has come a long way from the Southern Georgia boy who moved to Nashville with a vision board that held his dream of signing a recording contract. These days, he's one of the most recognizable artists in country music, and popular music in general. From his look to his sound, he's one of the most recognizable faces and voices in American culture today.

If Bryan's success is any indication, he's appealing to a wide spectrum of country fans. Since his debut, the Georgia native has earned fifteen No. 1 hits. His Tailgates and Tanlines and Crash My Party albums have each received double platinum certifications from the RIAA for sales exceeding two million units each.

He's also taken over the highly coveted spot as co-host of the ACM Awards ceremony. For the past two years, he's stood beside Blake Shelton, the senior co-host (who spent two years co-hosting with Reba McEntire). This year, Bryan becomes the senior on stage, welcoming newcomer Dierks Bentley as a co-host. Read more here.
