This is the night country fans and artists have been waiting for all year! The CMA Awards!
Nominees for the 51st CMA Awards were announced by Lauren Alaina, Brothers Osborne and Dustin Lynch on the September 4 episode of Good Morning America. Miranda Lambert led the nominations, with a total of five to her name. Right behind her came Keith Urban and Little Big Town, who each earned a total of four nominations.
Since the nominations were revealed, fans have been wondering who will will in each category. Will Garth Brooks hold on to his crown as Entertainer of the Year? Will Lambert return to claim the Female Vocalist trophy after Carrie Underwood‘s big win last year?
Well now we don’t have to ask those questions any longer, because country music’s big night has finally arrived!
