Many folks who watched the 2021 Academy of Country Music Awards didn’t think 2020’s Entertainer of the Year Carrie Underwood got the love she deserved last night.
While seeing Carrie and best-selling female gospel artist CeCe Winans crush their gospel medley at the 56th ACM Awards on Sunday night, some fans couldn’t get over the fact that the American Idol alum hadn’t been nominated this year in either the Female Artist of the Year or Entertainer of the Year categories.

On Sunday, Carrie walked away empty handed after being nominated in the Video of the Year category for her “Hallelujah” duet with John Legend (Kane Brown won the award for “Worldwide Beautiful”). The Entertainer of the Year category was filled with all male nominees, with the top prize going to Luke Bryan at the end of the night.
Not surprisingly, the snub didn’t sit well with her dedicated fanbase. But even still, everyone seemed impressed that despite the lack of recognition, Carrie gave it her absolute all on the stage with CeCe. “Carrie Underwood, not even nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year, just told y’all what she thought of the incredulous disrespect… #ACM #ACMAwards,” one fan tweeted. “@carrieunderwood snubbed for this year’s ACM Awards. No EoTY nomination, no Female artist of the year nomination. What she does? She delivered the best performance of the night by far. That’s how you do it Queen Carrie. Proud of my idol! Show’em they’re wrong,” another said.
Of course, the Academy of Country Music has recognized Carrie many times before for her extraordinary talent. Just last year, she and Thomas Rhett shared the top Entertainer of the Year prize. What’s more, she is currently the female with the most Entertainer of the Year awards under her belt after winning in 2009, 2010 and 2020. Throughout her career, she has also taken home Female Vocalist of the Year several times.
Regardless of how you feel, we’re just happy to see that she and CeCe nailed it. As for disappointed Carrie fans, there’s always a chance for the ACM to redeem itself next year.
