The 2016 ACM Awards nominees were announced this morning, and there were definitely some huge surprises! Former ACM Awards show co-host Blake Shelton was completely left off the list of this year's nominees, while his ex-wife earned three nominations including her fifth nomination for Entertainer of the Year and 10th consecutive nod for Female Vocalist of the Year.

Eric Church and Chris Stapleton lead the nominations with five each, while newcomer and 'Burning House' singer, Cam, drew in an impressive four nominations along with Chris Young and Little Big Town.

Husband-wife duo Joey+Rory, who won New Vocal Duo or Group honors in 2009, were nominated in the Vocal Duo of the Year category.
