The 57th Annual CMA Awards are right around the corner.
Lainey Wilson is leading the pack with a whopping nine nominations, and first-time nominee Jell Roll leads all male artists with five nominations. Luke Combs and HARDY have four nominations each.
We have Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood, Morgan Wallen, Luke Combs and Lainey Wilson in a tight race for Entertainer of the Year, and Ashley McBryde Presents: Lindeville, Bell Bottom Country, Gettin’ Old, One Thing At A Time and Rolling Up the Welcome Mat all nominated for Album of the Year.
While, sure, it would be great to see a lot more diversity in terms of nominees if the likes of Tyler Childers, Colter Wall, 49 Winchester and Charles Wesley Godwin were also included, but at least Zach Bryan is up for New Artist of the Year (for whatever that’s worth).
And today, they revealed the first round of performers, which includes Luke Bryan, Jelly Roll, K. Michelle, Little Big Town, Megan Moroney, Old Dominion, Carly Pearce and Chris Stapleton, Tanya Tucker and Lainey Wilson.
