CMA Awards Nominations 2015

(CMA Awards)

The 2015 CMA Awards nominations were announced on Wednesday. Check out the full list of nominees below!

Steven Tyler and Kelsea Ballerini revealed the nominations on “Good Morning America.” It was particularly an honor for Ballerini who, after a breakout year, found out she was nominated in multiple categories. The singer was understandably ecstatic when Tyler announced her as a New Artist of the Year nominee, and then repeatedly yelled “That’s not real!” when he read her name for Female Vocalist of the Year.

Of course, the biggest category is Entertainer of the Year, for which Miranda Lambert is the only woman to score a nod. She’s competing against Garth Brooks, Eric Church, reigning champ Luke Bryan, and Kenny Chesney. Lambert will also be seeking to win Female Vocalist for the sixth time.

The CMA Awards, also known as the Country Music Association Awards and the CMAs, will air live on ABC on November 4. Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will once again host, this time for the eighth year in a row. See all the nominees below, as well as the nominations video!
