Eric Church Beats Out Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert For Most CMA Nominations
The nominees for this year's Country Music Awards came as a little bit of a surprise, being as neither Taylor Swift nor Miranda Lambert led the pack by garnering the most nominations. Instead, that honor went to newbie Eric Church, who leads the list with five nominations, to Lambert and hubby Blake Shelton's four each, and Swift's three.
The nominees for the CMAs were announced Wednesday morning in Times Square in a segment that was aired on ABC's Good Morning America. Jason Aldean announced the names of the musicians who will be honored on Thursday, November 1, at the 46th Annual Country Music Awards in Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, and he was supposed to be joined by Lady Antebellum, but the band was unable to travel due to bad weather. "But we'll be tuned in to @GMS tomorrow morning with you!" assured Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott when she discovered that she would not be able to make it.
Another relative newcomer, Luke Bryan (having been nominated only one other time) took two nods for Male Vocalist and Album of the Year. Swift, who was nominated again this year for Entertainer of the Year, was the only female to grace the category. The two-time winner of the highest CMA honor is in the category with Shelton, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney and Aldean. Swift's other two nominations are for Female Vocalist of the Year and Musical Even of the Year.
People must have been pleased enough with Carrie Underwood and Paisley's hosting performances last year, as they are returning to take on the duty a second time. The CMAs will air on ABC on November 1.
