51st CMA Award Nominees

Miranda Lambert leads with five nominations at the upcoming 51st CMA Awards. She’s followed closely by Keith Urban and Little Big Town, each earning four.

With the 2017 baby boom and Brad and Carrie hosting for their 10th consecutive year, Country music’s biggest night should be highly entertaining!
