Country music star Miranda Lambert has scored a record nine CMA Awards nominations, more than any other female artist in the show’s history. The Country Music Association announced the nominations for the 44th Annual CMA Awards on Wednesday.
Miranda Lambert is up for a total of nine CMA Awards, including Album of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Entertainer of the Year, Single of the Year and Song of the Year.
Lambert will actually be going up against her fiance, Blake Shelton, in three award categories. That should make for some fun times at home!
The CMA Awards will air on November 12 on ABC. Check out the full list of nominees below.
Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, the reigning CMA male and female vocalists of the year,will host the Country Music Association Awards on Nov. 12. The awards will be held at “the mother ship”, Nashville’s Sommet Center. ABC will air the show live beginning at 7 p.m. CMA boss Tammy Genovese said,
“In addition to their musical talent, Brad’s quick wit and Carrie’s gracefulness will serve them well in this role. CMA is happy to offer both of them their first opportunity to host a nationally televised network awards show. “
Brad and Carrie will perform on the show, as will Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, George Strait, Sugarland, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban. Don’t look for newly countryfied Jessica Simpson to perform! If arch-enemy Carrie can’t maintain her “gracefulness” and takes a swipe at her from the stage it would be MUST SEE TV!
