The 54th Annual CMA Awards are ready to honor some of the biggest names in country music!
Miranda Lambert earned the most nominations this year, scoring seven nods including Female Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year, Single of the Year, Album of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. The nominations make the "Bluebird" singer officially the most-nominated female artist in CMA history, with 55, beating out Reba McEntire, who earned her 51st nod this year.
The CMA voting body also honored Garth Brooks' wishes not to be included in this year's Entertainer of the Year category -- Lambert will be facing off against Luke Combs, Eric Church, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban for the coveted award.
"This year’s nominees represent the passion, creativity and hope our world could use more of these days. From record-shattering milestones to reaching across genre lines, these finalists are outstanding examples of the craft and camaraderie Country Music holds deeply," said CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern. "As we navigate the coming months and look to properly honor our nominees and the community, we are committed to delivering the safest and most memorable live television experience our artists, creators and fans could ask for. We cannot wait to reveal our two incredible CMA Awards hosts in just a few weeks and we look forward to celebrating Country Music this November!"
