Miranda Lambert tops CMA Awards with 9 nominations
Question of the Day
The Atlanta six-piece is the first act to be nominated for both entertainer and new artist in the same year since Ricky Skaggs in 1982.
Shelton is up for male vocalist of the year, and his collaboration with Trace Adkins on “Hillbilly Bone” earned him nominations for single, music event and video of the year. That means Adkins also has three nominations.
Lambert said she called Shelton shortly after reading the list of nominees. A storm knocked out his satellite reception, so he didn’t know he was up for so many awards.
“I’m so excited for him I haven’t had time to be excited for myself,” Lambert said. “This is a long time coming for him. He’s got four nominations, and male vocalist of the year is one I feel like he should’ve been nominated for every year and every awards show, and won, and he’s never even been nominated. He is one of the most amazing male vocalists out there and I’m just glad he finally got what he deserved for a long time.”
Paisley moved into No. 3 on the CMA’s list of career nominations with three nods, including music video of the year and male vocalist, which he’s won three consecutive times. Paisley has been nominated every year since 2000 and has 52 career nods. Only George Strait (81, including two this year) and Alan Jackson (79) have more.
Bentley also has three nominations with nods for male vocalist of the year, album of the year for “Up On The Ridge” and the “Bad Angel” collaboration.
The CMA Awards show will be aired live on ABC on Nov. 10 from Nashville.
