Eric Church and Chris Stapleton are leading the way to Las Vegas!
The critically-acclaimed country stars tied for the most Academy of Country Music Awards nominations this year, scoring five nods apiece. The complete list of 2016 ACM Awards nominations was revealed on Monday morning, with ET's own Nancy O'Dell getting in on the fun and announcing six of the big categories.
Co-hosts Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan each scored two nominations, but won't face off in any individual category. Bryan is up for Entertainer of the Year for the fourth consecutive year, while Bentley will vie for Male Vocalist of the Year.
Meanwhile, Joey + Rory earned their sixth career ACM nomination for Vocal Duo of the Year. The real-life couple previously took home the honor of New Vocal Duo of the Year in 2009.
