Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney Lead in Academy of Country Music Nods

Standard

A freight train couldn’t stop Miranda Lambert from having a better year in Country music. The 27 year old singer, who won big at the Country Music Awards, now leads the nominations for the Academy of Country Music awards, with seven nods.

MTV reports that Lambert will vie for the evening’s biggest prize, Entertainer of the Year against fellow nominees Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and country’s other leading lady, Taylor Swift, who earned four nods total this year, including Album of the Year for her chart-topper Speak Now. For the third year, Entertainer of the Year will be voted on by fans.

Lambert can also be found in the Top Female Vocalist of the Year category, as well as Single Record of the Year and Song of the Year for her #1 radio hit “The House That Built Me.” She’s also been nominated alongside country royalty, as she and Loretta Lynn, along with Sheryl Crow, are up for Vocal Event of the Year for their rendition of “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”

Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown Band are right behind Lambert with five nominations each. Other notable contenders are Carrie Underwood, Sugarland, and newcomers The Band Perry.

The 46th annual Academy of Country Music Awards will air live on CBS on April 3 at 8 p.m.
