Miranda Lambert dominates the list of nominees for The 51st Annual CMA Awards.

The singer-songwriter leads the pack with five nominations followed by Little Big Town and Keith Urban who have both picked up four nominations. Lambert’s nominations include Single and Song of the Year and Record of the Year for The Weight of These Wings.

“The talent of the past year for Country has been exceptional,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. It’s great to see nominee names that have graced the list before, and continue to deliver quality artistry. It’s equally thrilling to see six new names – ushering in a new generation earning their first CMA Awards nods.”

The 51st Annual CMA Awards will be hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood and broadcast live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Wednesday 8th November (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network.
