Taylor Swift and Eric Church Dominate The ACM Nominees List

The nominations for the ACM awards (American Country Music, for the uninitiated), were announced on Wednesday, and, as expected, Taylor Swift cleaned up. Everyone’s favorite broken-hearted girl picked up five nominations, including the coveted entertainer-of-the-year nod, the top honor in the award show. A win for Swift would make her the first solo female artist to ever win the award, but of course, she is up against some pretty tough competition with Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert and the show’s co-hosts, Luke Brian and Blake Shelton also on the list.

Let’s not forget all of the other acts competing for awards, either. The overachiever this year has to be Eric Church, with his seven nominations. For those counting at home, that’s every category he’s eligible for, apart from Entertainer of the Year. Some other big winners (or potential ones, anyway) are Hunter Hayes with six nods and, of course, Miranda Lambert with five nominations. So it’s shaping up to be an interesting evening. With Hayes up for what could be his very first ACM win, and Miranda and Taylor both competing to be the first female entertainer of the year, there’s bound to be at least a little bit of tension in the air on the big night. Though we’re always keeping our fingers crossed for Taytay – don’t tell anyone.

The 48th annual Academy of Country Music Awards will air live April 7 (CBS, 8 p.m. ET/tape delay PT), from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. You can catch the full list of nominees on the official ACM website.
