George Strait already holds the unrivaled record for the most CMA Award nominations of any artist in history, and today he is adding yet another to the list with a nod for this year’s CMA Entertainer of the Year. The nomination marks Strait’s 83rd CMA Award nomination overall and his 19th in the coveted Entertainer of the Year category. If Strait repeats his 2013 victory, he will take home his fourth CMA Entertainer of the Year title and the 23rd CMA Award of his legendary career.

“It’s a great honor to be nominated for CMA Entertainer of the Year,” Strait shared after the nominations were announced this morning. “It’s been an incredible year, and this just puts the icing on the cake!”

Earlier this year, Strait completed the final leg of his farewell The Cowboy Rides Away Tour with a record-breaking show at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The star-studded event brought in the largest crowd of any North American indoor concert in history, topping out with nearly 105,000 in attendance. On Tuesday, Sept. 16, Strait will release the 20-track live album The Cowboy Rides Away: Live from AT&T Stadium,produced by Chuck Ainlay and George Strait for George Strait Productions.
