Vocal Duo of the Year
Four Davids will take on a proverbial Goliath as Dan + Shay, Love & Theft, the Swon Brothers and Thompson Square face off against reigning multiplatinum champs Florida Georgia Line.
Who Will Win: Florida Georgia Line have this one absolutely locked up. They've continued to crank out Number One smash singles like "This Is How We Roll" and "Dirt," the latter of which subverted the duo's standard party-song formula, and their latest album, Anything Goes, just topped the Billboard 200. Florida Georgia Line certainly have their detractors, but their commercial appeal will carry them to CMA success.
Who Should Win: No one is dethroning FGL this time around, but Love & Theft are the most enjoyable act nominated here. While the duo parted ways with their label earlier this year, they have a knack for crafting memorable melodies and infusing their delivery with ample charm.
