The 2016 ACC Awards nominations were announced on Wednesday. Check out the full list of nominees below!

For the second American Country Countdown Awards, also known as the ACCAs, Luke Bryan leads the pack with seven nods. He is nominated in the top category, Artist of the Year, along with Blake Shelton, Sam Hunt, Florida Georgia Line, and Jason Aldean. Aldean is fresh off winning Entertainer of the Year at last Sunday’s Academy of Country Music Awards, which Bryan co-hosted.

The two are also nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year. They’ll compete against Shelton, Hunt, and Thomas Rhett. For Female Vocalist of the Year, the contenders are Carrie Underwood, Jana Kramer, Kelsea Ballerini, Cam, and Miranda Lambert.

Underwood is slated to perform during the ceremony, as will Bryan, Rhett, and Florida Georgia Line. The event will take place on May 1 at The Forum in Los Angeles, marking the first country-themed awards show to be held in the California city in more than 10 years. A host will be announced in the coming weeks.

The ACC Awards, which will air on FOX, are named after the American Country Countdown radio show. Check out the full list of this year’s nominations below!
