Garth Brooks has enough CMA Entertainer of the Year awards for a lifetime.
Brooks announced he would no longer run for re-election for the honour. The move is a permanent one as Brooks would like to see other artists celebrated.
“We feel very lucky with seven,” Brooks said, per Deadline. The country legend admitted fan backlash over his many honours “made winning Entertainer of the Year not that fun to tell you the truth.”
Though some fans and Entertainer of the Year hopefuls may be relieved by the titan’s announcement, one country crooner definitely is not.
