    When are they gonna announce the nominees ? I hope Randy Houser gets a nomination! “How Country Feels” is a great song.

    ^^^ I am surprised that it wasn’t said when the nominations are going to be shared. I would love to see “No Hurry” from the Zac Brown Band be in there for Song of the Year. (smiles)

    God bless you and them and the songwriters always!!!

    Blown Away definitely deserves a nom for Single of the year, possibly song too. Carrie Underwood also deserves EOTY this year, Album, Female, and Video for Blown Away.

    ACM nominations were just announced. Pretty impressive list.

    -Kacey Musgraves for Female VOTY! And she didn’t even win New Female VOTY! That’s amazing!

    -Aldean, Bryan, and Miranda are all up for EOTY!

    -Eric Church lead with 7 nominations.

    -How the hell are “Chief” and “Tailgates & Tanlines” still eligible???? They’re both great albums, don’t get me wrong, but they were released in 2011. Miranda’s “Four The Record” was released in November 2011, and it made the cut last year. Anyone have the eligibility rules for the ACMs?

    -Taylor Swift’s “Red” (a straight-up pop record) being up for AOTY is a complete joke.

    -I love “Let It Rain.” It’s a great song, but David Nail being up for Vocal Event of The Year is a total stretch. Sarah Buxton’s never credited on the radio or in the video. It’s always been billed as a David Nail song. Weird that now, they decide to give her credit.

    Chief was nominated by them as AotY last year.

    again, Lambert got in for “Over You”. she won other country award for it, but still was snubbed by Grammy awards. i don’t get it.

    Why is Sugarland in there again for the Duo of the Year award when they haven’t had a song on the radio since “Tonight” which got released 2 years ago? To me, Montgomery Gentry should have made it in there since they are back on the radio with “Where I Come From” and “I’ll Keep The Kids”.

    God bless you and Troy and Eddie always!!!

    Holy balls. I just checked last year’s nominations. You’re right, “Chief” was nommed. How in the world is it nominated again this year? The ACMs need to fix all their rules regarding eligibility. I love “Chief,” it’s an incredible record, but being this is just ludicrous.

    And yeah, it’s so weird that CMA’s Song of The Year (“Over You”) was snubbed at the Grammys. Then Grammy’s Best Country Song (“Blown Away”) was snubbed by the ACMs. What gives? “Springsteen” seems to be the only song to be consistently nominated, and it keeps losing! I hope it wins this one!

    These nominations are HORRIBLE. Possibly the worst nominations I have ever seen from this group.

    I had high hopes going into these nominations, seeing as these are the only Country Music awards that seem to have legitimate nominations (I mean, they gave Carrie Underwood EOTY 2 years in a row. Well deserved). However these are horrible nominations.

    First, 2 of the most played singers on the radio this year, Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley, are snubbed completely. Plus, where is Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Montgomery Gentry, Rascal Flatts, etc.?

    How did Kacey Musgraves get nominated for Female Vocalist, but lose Top New Female Vocalist?

    The fact that they nominated Chief for Album of the Year for the second year in a row is bullshit. Also, “Easy” by Rascal Flatts was released 2 years ago, along with Chief and Tailgates & Tanlines. Why did they get nominated?

    The fact that they nominated Sugarland, who have been on a 2 year hiatus, but snubbed Montgomery Gentry is ridiculous.

    It seems that when Reba left the ACM’s as their host, she took all of the sense and credibility the show had with her. I’m glad a legend like her does not have to host these awards in an embarrassing year last this.

    I complained about “Chief”‘s back-to-back nominations on Twitter, and ACM sent me a link to their voting criteria.

    ALBUM OF THE YEAR 
    This award is presented to the artist(s), producer(s) and record company of an outstanding country music album during the prior calendar year of December 1st to November 28th.  The nominees shall be determined by a nomination ballot(s) and are subject to the approval of the Board. The winner shall be determined by a vote of the ACM professional membership.   

    Any album released during the eligibility period and achieving its largest cumulative sales impact in the Nielsen Sounds can Country Albums chart is eligible.  If the album was released prior to the eligibility period, but achieved its largest cumulative sales impact during the eligibility period, it is eligible unless it has won previously in this category.
    ================

    So going by those rules, “Chief” is eligible for this year’s awards. But if that’s the case, then it shouldn’t have been nominated last year. This is such a load of horsesh*t.

    The factors that determine EOTY nominees include: success at radio, sales of pre-recorded music, success of music videos, vocal performances, live concert ticket sales, artistic merit, appearances on television, appearances in films, songwriting, success in digital media, and contributions to the country music industry.

    Taking all those into consideration, it’s even clearer now that Kenny Chesney and Carrie Underwood deserved to be nominated.
