CMA Nominations: Miranda Lambert Makes History

The full list of this year’s CMA nominations is out and the big headline is all about Miranda Lambert. See how many nominations she got as well as who else scored multiple nods.

Miranda Lambert scored a record 9 nominations for the November 10th CMA awards. Yesterday, Miranda found out she scored two nominations in each of the following categories: Video of the Year, Single of the Year, and Song of the Year for both her singles “White Liar” and “The House That Built Me.” This morning, the major categories were announced and Miranda found herself in the field for Musical Event of the Year (for her contribution to Dierks Bentley’s “Bad Angel”), Album of the Year for Revolution, Female Vocalist of the Year, and her first ever nomination for Entertainer of the Year.

Coming in second is Lady Antebellum who nabbed 6 nominations. Lady A joins Lambert in the Video, Single, and Song categories for their smash hit, “Need You Now.” The group’s sophomore album, Need You Now, also secured a nomination in the Album of the Year category. They also nabbed another Vocal Group of the Year nomination as well as their first ever Entertainer of the Year nomination. Just like this year’s ACM awards, most of the categories will be a battle between Lady A and Miranda Lambert.

Also securing multiple nominations are Zac Brown with four nominations, Dierks Bentley and Blake Shelton with three nominations, and Easton Corbin and Trace Adkins who each scored two nominations.

Here is a complete list of nominees and look for All Things Country to take an indepth look at the nominees as well as the artists we feel got snubbed in a later post.
