Why not Bryan for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 43-year-old singer, as a 2020 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Bryan so important is the potential and influence he now has, rather than anything he has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the singer have already been named ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘Leesburg Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Leesburg (Luke Bryan's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the singer was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“Luke Bryan Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 11 Dec 2019
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveLuke”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 11 Dec 2019
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Luke Bryan?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 11 Dec 2019

Could 2020 officially be the Year of Luke Bryan?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2020 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2020?
