Nominees for the 51st Annual CMA Awards were announced on Good Morning America Monday morning (September 4). Lauren Alaina, Brothers Osborne and Dustin Lynch announced the nominees live on GMA, with Miranda Lambert leading all nominees with 5, followed closely by Keith Urban and Little Big Town who received 4 each. 

Lambert responded to the nominations on social media with a celebratory photo and a heartfelt thank you.


A fact that can't go unnoticed is that no female artists were nominated for Entertainer of the Year and most of the other categories contained mostly male nominees. The nominations are a testament to the tough time that female artists have had in recent years. 

And, for the second straight year, Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean were snubbed by the CMA. 

Another fact worth noting is that former CMA Entertainer of the Year Taylor Swift was nominated for Song of the Year for her song "Better Man," recorded by Little Big Town. 


The 2017 CMA Awards are scheduled to air on Wednesday, November 8 on ABC, with Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood returning to co-host for the tenth consecutive year.
