The 2017 ACM Awards are just weeks away. While industry insiders will decide who takes home the awards on April 2, we want to hear from you.
There’s an impressive roster of nominees this year, and competition is fierce. Keith Urban leads the 2017 nominations, after releasing his highly acclaimed Ripcord album last May. He garnered nominations in seven categories, including Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for Ripcord, and Single and Song of the Year for “Blue Ain’t Your Color.”
Country’s leading ladies also had a strong showing in the nominations. Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris tied for six nominations each. And Carrie Underwood is the only female star to clock a nomination for Entertainer of the Year.
Morris, Brothers Osborne and Jon Pardi already scored early awards in their respective New Artist of the Year categories. The news came three weeks in advance of the ACM Awards.
Also, Tim McGraw and Florida Georgia Line snagged five nominations each. McGraw is listed in prominent categories like Single, Song and Video of the Year for “Humble and Kind” and Vocal Event of the Year for “May We All” with Florida Georgia Line.
To top it all off, the live show will feature performances from Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line with the Backstreet Boys, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town.
Tune into CBS at 7 pm on April 2 to see who will win. But first, tell us who you think deserves to take home some of the night’s biggest awards.
