Luke Bryan wins first Country Music Association top honor

Yahoo! Music News - Thu, 11/06/2014 - 15:40

Luke Bryan speaks in the press room after receiving 'Entertainer of the Year' award, during the 48th annual CMA awards at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, on November 5, 2014Luke Bryan was named Wednesday the Country Music Association entertainer of the year, the first time the award has gone to the star known for his alcohol-infused ballads. While the Georgia-born singer took home the most prestigious prize at the awards in Nashville, the biggest medal haul went to Miranda Lambert, whose "Platinum" won album of the year and who scored the top single with "Automatic." For entertainer of the year, Bryan beat out a crowd that included Lambert, her husband and fellow country giant Blake Shelton, and 62-year-old legend George Strait, who took home the top prize the previous year. "Drink A Beer," a song off Bryan's latest album, touches on the loss as he recounts watching the sunset and savoring a brew by himself as he once would have done with his siblings.
