NASHVILLE, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Kenny Chesney
was named entertainer of the year at the 41st annual CMA awards show in Nashville Wednesday.

Also nominated in the category were Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, George Strait and Keith Urban.
Carrie Underwood won the prize for female vocalist of the year, while Brad Paisley took home the CMA award for male vocalist of the year.
