The backlash from failing to have any female Entertainer of the Year nominees at next month’s ACMs is not going away. This time it was LUKE BRYAN being asked about it in an interview on Buzzfeed’s “Profile”.
He said, quote, “I think it’s always disappointing when women are left out of the Entertainer of the Year categories. It’s something the country music community has taken note of . . . that women aren’t truly getting represented like they need to.
“It’s something on everybody’s radar, and I think Reba has earned the right to voice her opinion on matters like that. Somebody like Reba has to stand up and say to the Academy of Country Music and all forms of country music awards shows.” He adds that ALL the female country performers have a right to speak up about it. And he’s also planning to do his part by inviting more women artists to be openers on his shows.
