Miranda Lambert Reigns Supreme With 8 ACM Awards Nominations

By
Miranda Lambert has done it again.
The reigning Academy of Country Music Female Vocalist of the Year is up for eight awards at the 2015 ACM Awards, leading the pack with more nominations than any other artist. The full list of nominees was unveiled on Friday, Jan. 30, after Entertainment Tonight's own Nancy O'Dell revealed the first category on Thursday's show.
Lambert is up for the ACM's top awards, including Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year and Female Vocalist of the year. (No surprise there: it’s Lambert's ninth consecutive nom in the latter category!)
But the boys are hot on her heels. Dierks Bentley and Florida Georgia Line scored seven and five nominations respectively, while Eric Church, Kenny Chesney and Luke Bryan are up for four awards each.
See the complete list of nominees below.
The 50th annual ACM Awards will air live on Sunday, April 19, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. The ceremony will be co-hosted once again by the hilarious Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.
ETonline will have plenty of ACM coverage in the weeks leading up to the event, with boots on the ground in Texas when it all goes down. Stick with us for all the latest!
