The nominations for the 2015 ACM Awards were unveiled on Friday. See the full list of nominees below!

Miranda Lambert leads the pack with eight nods. She picked up her ninth consecutive nomination for Female Vocalist of the Year, and is also up for Entertainer of the Year. In that category, she’s actually the only woman nominated, and will face off against Jason Aldean, Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, and Florida Georgia Line. Brooks, however, may have the advantage, as he reigns as the winningest Entertainer of the Year in the history of the awards, having taken home the top prize six times before.

Dierks Bentley, though not nominated for Entertainer of the Year, received the second-most nominations, scoring seven, including Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for Riser. Florida Georgia Line follow with five nods, including the aforementioned Entertainer of the Year nomination. Eric Church, Kenny Chesney, and Bryan each received four nominations.

The nomination announcements were made by a number of stars, including Aldean, Lee Brice, Jamie Lynn Spears, Tara Lapinski, and Joel McHale. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the award show. Bryan and Blake Shelton will return as hosts for the third year in a row. The ceremony will be broadcast live from AT&T Stadium in Texas on April 19.
