Announcing the 2017 Taste of Country Fan Choice Awards — Vote!
Country music's most fan-friendly awards are back with six new categories that reflect the crazy year we're wrapping. Vote in the 2017 Taste of Country Fan Choice Awards now to decide the song of the year (kind of), the performance of the year (in a way) and the cutest baby gender reveal all year long.
That one is real.
2017 has been a year of babies and tragedies in country music. Heavy topics dominated the second half, while artists seemed to be procreating like the population depended on it January through May. Seriously, if you're in Nashville don't drink the water unless you're looking to bring home a bundle of joy in 280 days.
Start voting now and then tell a friend about it. Voting ends at 11:59PM ET on December 7, 2017.
Best Netflix and Chill Soundtrack
What song is best when you're looking to Netflix and chill?! It really couldn't be any simpler.
The Hero Award
Each nominee in this category stood up this year to do or say something that took courage most people do not have. Who do you think is country music's hero of 2017?
Best Artist/Fan Moment
You'll cry happy and sad tears reliving some of the best artist/fan interactions from 2017. One artist surprised his fans. Another visited a fan in the hospital. A country trio crashed a wedding. Vote for the one that moved you!
Most Jaw-Dropping Performance
Also known as the "Did you see ...?" award because that's what you were asking your family and friends after it happened. Awards show performances, in-studio moments and television standing ovations all make this list, so pick your fave. (Watch Brett here, Carrie here, Eric here, Jason here, Keith here, Keith again but with Carrie, Kris Jones here.)
Woman of the Year
It's the most prestigious of the 2017 Taste of Country Fan Choice Awards. The nominees were chosen from artists who released new music or toured this year. Legends, superstars and newcomers are all featured prominently.
Cutest Baby Gender Reveal
From sweets to outfits to the use of firearms ... yep, that actually happened this year. Vote for the artist you think had the most adorable baby gender reveal in 2017!
Top Indie Artist
Label? We don't need no stinkin' label! The nominees for this award found success in 2017 without the help of a record label. Included in a controversial outlaw, two Taste of Country RISERS, a Texas legend and the CMA Entertainer of the Year.
