Eric Church and Little Big Town lead this year’s Country Music Awards nominations with five bids each while Kenny Chesney and Miranda Lambert earned four apiece. Coming in at three nominations are veteran Kacey Musgraves and a trio of new talent — Sam Hunt, Maddie & Tae and Chris Stapleton.
The CMA gave me so many surprises and I was very close with all of my predictions but I was like one nominee off of each category. The CMA is very smart for choosing really good surprises especially Eric Church getting nominated for Entertainer! WOW!
