CMA Nominees

Miranda Lambert is the leader of the 2010 CMA Award nominee pack, with nine nominations going into November's broadcast, including her first-ever nod for the coveted Entertainer of the Year honor. It's the most nominations ever for a female artist in the history of the CMAs.

"It's unbelievable. I'm really shocked at some of my nominations!" a beaming Miranda said on ABC's 'Good Morning America' Wednesday after announcing the nominees alongside Dierks Bentley, himself a three-time nominee this year.

"2010 is definitely my lucky year," Miranda continued. "I've started putting '10' on everything. I got engaged, now the CMAs ... I didn't even think I was eligible for nine awards!"

Miranda is up against fiancé Blake Shelton in three different categories, while Blake also scores his first-ever nomination for Male Vocalist of the Year. Other first-time nominees include Steel Magnolia in the Vocal Duo category and the Band Perry for Vocal Group. CMA first-timers Luke Bryan, Easton Corbin, Jerrod Niemann and Chris Young are all nominated for New Artist of the Year, competing against four-time nominees this year, the Zac Brown Band.

Taylor Swift, who led the 2009 CMA winners with four trophies including the night's biggest honor, Entertainer of the Year, walked away with only one nomination this year, for Female Vocalist, which she also won last year. She's up against Miranda, Reba McEntire, Martina McBride and Carrie Underwood. Taylor will pass her Entertainer of the Year honors on to either Miranda, Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban or the Zac Brown Band.

The 44th Annual Country Music Association Awards will air live from Nashville on November 10. Brad Paisley (who has three nods) and Carrie Underwood (a two-time nominee) will co-host the show for the third year in a row. See the full list of 2010 CMA Award nominations below.
