As someone who has seen Keith multiple times this is so long overdue for him. He is an absolutely incredible entertainer. Since he won it the first time years ago Iโ€™ve been waiting for him to win it again. Way to go Keith!

Anyone who knows... _knows..._ he truly deserves it and has for years. He's been snubbed for a decade, but is miles above the others in so many ways. It's really not even close, but this has been a long time coming.

Edit: and by snubbed I mean, he lost to Taylor Swift a couple of years. I mean come on...
Heena Naz
Heena Naz:
He's such a gentleman and so handsome! ๐Ÿ˜

I have watched this approximately 1 million times in the past 2 days. He has deserved this award for so many years now. It shouldn't have taken him this long to win a 2nd time and I'm just so genuinely happy that he's finally getting some recognition again!
Kimberly Sadler-Lightsey
Kimberly Sadler-Lightsey:
SERIOUSLY LONG OVERDUE. I have watched this video at least a dozen times and each time I get emotional. I have been a fan for over a decade and it truly means so much to his fans who have known for years he was snubbed. He is the most humble and gracious man! CONGRATULATIONS Keith!
Brandi Mccarty
Brandi Mccarty:
I can watch his reaction over and over all day long and still smile and tear up at how sweet It is.

FINALLY! So deserved. He's one of the best shows I've ever seen!
Kris
Kris:
I've been a fan of his since the very beginning. I just saw him a few weeks to celebrate my 40th bday. (We're "birthday twins," Oct. 26.) I was in the front row and the show was just as good as the 20+ other times I've seen him live. LOL No one deserved this more and it's long overdue.
Meghan Castro
Meghan Castro:
I bawled my eyes out yesterday watching this cause I was so proud of him. And today, a day afterwards, I thought โ€œHey this is exciting for him Iโ€™m not gonna cryโ€......NOPE Still crying! Keith you deserved this more than you can believe!
Shirley Shamblin
Shirley Shamblin:
Best entertainer by far!
NONEYABUSINESS
NONEYABUSINESS:
I love that those that arenโ€™t even huge fans of his have the sense to realize this was definitely deserved. You see so many awards handed out and nothing but comments tearing that person down because the commenters favorite didnโ€™t win. Keith is such an all around great guy and amazing performer that not many can disagree with this award. You only see one or two negative comments on any of the videos or articles of this acceptance and thatโ€™s a beautiful thing. Itโ€™s great to see such and honest, caring and humble artist get the recognition they deserve.

When going to like the video my natural instinct was to to slide to right for the heart emoji! Lol we love you Keith!!!! You da man
Kimberly Sadler-Lightsey

the moment at 1:52 where he clearly struggles to remember everyone and he is so overwhelmed and HUMBLE WRECKS ME!!! โ™ฅ๏ธ

Becky Drogowski:
About friggin time!!! Been way too long since his last win for this category. So deserved. I was getting so tired of seeing him snubbed year after year. Congrats to Keith, he's the absolute best in concert. Rock it Keith, love it!!!!
Misty Moon
Misty Moon:
Way back in November 2000 I heard my first song by Keith, "But for the Grace of God" and I fell in love with his music then. It almost seems like he is talking about Nicole in the video. He is truly blessed! I love his music!!!

Silver Hawk

I freaking cried watching this. I'm so happy. Keith is one of my favorites and probably the most humble artist. He deserves the best
Madalyn Keane
Madalyn Keane:
Keith definitely deserved this. Seeing him in concert twice and it never gets old. His shows are worth every penny. He played for two hours straight and the way he engages the whole audience is nothing like I ever see from any other musicians. He makes it apparent that no fan should go without experiencing the greatest time at his concerts. I went to his concert for GraffitiU tour and he stayed a half hour after the show was completely done and signed for nearly all the people that stayed behind. I was up in the seats and kept thinking heโ€™s gonna be done in like 10 minutes, then another 10 then another and he still signed. So I ran up to the stage to get an autograph and he had to leave to get on the bus. I was bummed. So if he stays after to sign again I wonโ€™t be taking any chances at getting and autograph. But let me say, I have seen many artists in concert and NO ONE has ever done that before.

He makes his passion for music and his compassion for his fans known. I will continue to see him every chance I get. ESPECIALLY after seeing how he goes the extra mile for his fans.

Now THAT is an Entertainer of the Year!

Not to mention he took time out of his day to meet a local girl who was ill and couldnโ€™t make it to the show that night all by a post that went viral. If that isnโ€™t the most compassionate musician I honestly donโ€™t know how you could genuinely top that one!

Thank you Keith for being you, a kind, caring, compassionate, loving, and thoughtful person. ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽตโ™ฅ๏ธ

And did you hear that list of people he thanked off the top of his head and called โ€œmy team?โ€ All women! In a year of a seemingly never-ending barrage of stories of pig-men, we are all reminded by this that there are REALLY GOOD GUYS out there, respecting women in the work they do and hiring them, loving their wives, raising awesome daughters...thank you, CMA voters and Keith Urban, for reminding us that nice guys CAN and DO โ€œfinish first!โ€

OMGoodness, I cried for Keith, I am so elated for him, he has
been overlooked for sooooo many years/decades. You deserve this award and so
many more Keith for your amazing voice, music, and staying true. God bless you.
ย Thank you, CMA for recognizing a true country
singer, and listening to Keithโ€™s fans. I just guess that I am in shock and beyond
belief that the CMA officials finally recognized the amazing true artist that
Keith Urban is and has been for decades now. ย Kudos to 2018 and Keith Urbanโ€ฆ

Watch Luke Bryan, even though he didn't win, he looked genuinely excited that Keith won. He stood up and threw his arms up like it was a victory for his fellow country artist.
