The most prestigious honor at the Academy of Country Music Awards each year is the Entertainer of the Year. And among this year’s five nominees is Taylor Swift.

Taylor is, of course, “one of the biggest pop stars in the world right now,” selling records by the millions and attracting fans across genres and formats, thanks to a seemingly nonstop string of hits from her four multiplatinum studio albums, including her latest release, Red.

Taylor was also last year’s ACM Entertainer of the Year, so some might call her the artist to beat among this year’s lineup.

Hear these and other insights about Taylor from our Radio.com panel of experts–and see what led to her ACM nomination–in this installment of Inside the Entertainer of the Year.

Our panel of experts included Marci Braun and Drew Walker of Chicago’s US99.5; Dr. Don, Rachael Hunter, and Steve Grunwald of Detroit’s 99.5 WYCD; The Boot‘s Beville DunkerleyGrady Smith and Leah Greenblatt of Entertainment WeeklyBillboard‘s Joe Levy; author Alan Light (The Holy or the Broken: Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, and the Unlikely Ascent of “Hallelujah”);  author and former Vibe editor Danyel Smith; and Radio.com’s Annie ReuterKurt Wolff, and Courtney Smith.
