Miranda Lambert Leads 2014 CMA Awards Nominees



The nominees of the 48th annual Country Music Association Awards were revealed on Wednesday, September 3. Miranda Lambert leads the pack as she scores nine nods and she is now tied with herself for the most nominations in one year for a female artist.

Her name is featured in seven different CMA categories including Entertainer of the Year, where she’s pitted against husband Blake Shelton and other country’s biggest stars like Luke Bryan, George Strait and Keith Urban.

She’s also set to battle against fellow musicians for other awards like Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for her “Platinum” and Song of the Year for the chart-topping album’s lead single “Automatic”.

Additionally, Lambert is nominated twice in Music Video of the Year and Musical Event of the Year categories for her “Something Bad” featuring Carrie Underwood and her collaboration with Urban “We Were Us”.

Other big CMA nominees include Dierks Bentley (Album of the Year for “Riser“, Male Vocalist of the Year”, Single of the Year and Video of the Year for “Drunk on a Plane”) and Kacey Musgraves (Female Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year and Video of the Year for “Follow Your Arrow”).

The 2014 CMA Awards will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on November 5. Brad Paisley and mom-to-be Underwood will host the show for the seventh year.
