Academy of Country Music Award Nominations Announced
Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church and Hunter Hayes lead nominations for the Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards.
Eric has the most nods for the event with seven, including Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for Chief. Hunter follows with six nominations; Miranda and Taylor have five each. The female singers will go head to head in the Entertainer of the Year category, a title won by Taylor three times, including the last two years in a row. Miranda also has an impressive winning streak, in the Female Vocalist Of The Year category. If she wins again this year it will be her fourth consecutive victory.
Clocking up four awards each are Luke Bryan, Little Big Town and Kacey Musgraves, while Blake Shelton - who will co-host the awards - is up for three trophies, as are Jason Aldean, Eli Young Band, and Florida Georgia Line.
Fans can vote in the New Artist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year categories from March 25, at the academy's website acmcountry.com.
