ACM Awards 2017 Nominees List

(Academy of Country Music)

The nominations for the 2017 Academy of Country Music Awards were announced on Thursday. Check out the full list of nominees below!

Lady Antebellum, ten-time ACM Award winners, revealed the nominees for a selection of this year’s categories on “CBS This Morning.” “Entertainment Tonight” hosts Nancy O’Dell and Kevin Frazier then announced even more contenders for the 52nd annual awards on the show’s website. Now all the categories have been unveiled.

It was recently announced the upcoming ACM Awards ceremony will be hosted by country music stars Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley, marking the second time the pair are co-hosting the show. Bryan previously co-hosted the ceremony in 2015 with Blake Shelton, before Bentley replaced Shelton the following year. At last year’s ceremony, Jason Aldean took home the award for Entertainer of the Year, while Chris Stapleton and Miranda Lambert won Male and Female Vocalist of the Year. Aldean is now up for the top prize again, and Lambert and Stapleton could win again, too.

For the first time ever, the ACM Awards are slated to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, and will air live on CBS April 2. Gossip Cop will have full coverage of the event. Check out the nominations list below!
