Artists of the Beer 2014

Why Only Recognize Artists for Their Musicianship?

CMT honored the outstanding country performers of 2014 during Tuesday night’s (Dec. 2) Artists of the Year special, but why only recognize artists for their musicianship?

We feel it is equally important to recognize those who help us get our drink on! Here are some winners who encouraged us to sit back and enjoy a cold one over the past 12 months.

Quench your thirst with the 2014 Artists of the Beer:

Dierks Bentley, “Drunk on a Plane”

Eric Church, “Cold One”
Brantley Gilbert, “Bottoms Up”
Lady Antebellum, “Bartender”
Little Big Town, “Day Drinking”
Jerrod Niemann, “Drink to That All Night”
