Taylor Swift has won two of the last three Entertainer of the Year trophies at the CMA Awards, but she’ll face four men equally as deserving at the 2012 show on Nov. 1. A strong case could make for all five artists announced as nominees on Wednesday (Sept. 5), but who do you think should win? 

Only Blake Shelton and Kenny Chesney released new albums during the CMA year, which ended on June 30, 2012. Singles from Swift and Jason Aldean‘s latest efforts continue to make an impression on radio, however, so new music will not be a requirement for the winner. Brad Paisley was also nominated after another year as one of country music’s top touring artists. Who will win it? Take the poll, then explain why your favorite artist should win in the comments section below.
