ACM Awards 2017: Complete List Of Nominees, Early Winners Announced

The Academy of Country Music announced the nominees for the 2017 ACM Awards last month, but since the ceremony is less than three weeks away, it seemed important to update fans on this year’s nominations.

Country superstar Keith Urban received more nominations than any other artist with a total of seven. Not only will he be going up against Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, and Carrie Underwood for Entertainer of the Year, but Urban has also been nominated for Vocalist of the Year, along with Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Thomas Rhett, and Chris Stapleton. Keith is also in the running for Album of the Year (artist and producer) for his latest album Ripcord, Single Record of the Year (artist and producer), and Song of the Year for “Blue Ain’t Your Color.”

Coming in with six nominations is none other than Miranda Lambert, who has been nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for The Weight of These Wings, and Single Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Video of the Year for her song “Vice.” Maren Morris also received six nominations in five different categories.

On March 14, in anticipation of the upcoming awards ceremony, the Academy of Country Music revealed the “New Artist” winners. Jon Pardi took home the award for New Male Vocalist of the Year, while Maren Morris won New Female Vocalist of the Year and Brothers Osbourne received the award for New Vocal Duo/Group of the Year. All three will be performing during the ceremony, which will take place on April 2.
