2014 CMA Awards Nominees


The 48th Annual CMA Awards will be hosted by Brad Paisley and (soon-to-be mama) Carrie Underwood and will air live on November 5th at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.

To no one’s surprise, Miranda Lambert is leading the way with nine nominations. She tied her own record for most female nominations and is just one shy for the overall record of nominations, which is 10 set by Alan Jackson in 2002.
