The nominees for the 46th annual Academy of Country Music Awards were announced this morning in Nashville by Miranda Lambert and Ronnie Dunn. Miranda is leading the pack with 7 nomintations followed by the Zac Brown Band with 5.

Here is the full list of nominees and my predictions of who will take the trophies:

Entertainer of the Year
Jason Aldean
Toby Keith
Miranda Lambert
Brad Paisley
Taylor Swift
Keith Urban

Prediction: This one will be tough, but just like the CMA’s I think Brad Paisley will take the prize. If you saw his H2O tour at SPAC over the summer, he is THE entertainer! Nice to see Jason Aldean get a nod as well, I saw him when he first started out at a show in the Lake George area and I knew he was going places then!

Top Female Vocalist
Miranda Lambert
Reba McEntire
Taylor Swift
Carrie Underwood
Lee Ann Womack

Prediction: It’s all about Miranda!

Top Male Vocalist
Jason Aldean
Brad Paisley
Blake Shelton
George Strait
Keith Urban

Prediction: I am gonna go out on a limb on this one and go with Jason Aldean. It’s his first nomination in this category and he keeps cranking out the hits.

Top Vocal Duo
The JaneDear Girls
Joey + Rory
Montgomery Gentry
Steel Magnolia
Sugarland

Prediction: I don’t think any duo is strong enough to beat Sugarland in this one!

Top Vocal Group
Lady Antebellum
Little Big Town
Randy Rogers Band
The Band Perry
Zac Brown Band

Prediction: It comes down to Lady A and the Zac Brown Band in this one. I am going with ZBB!

Top New Solo Vocalist
Eric Church
Easton Corbin
Randy Houser

Prediction: With 2 straight #1 hits outta the box, I gotta go with the guy who is A Little More Country Than That!

Top New Vocal Duo or Group
The Band Perry
The JaneDear Girls
Steel Magnolia

Prediction: Wow, another tough one! My money is on The Band Perry!

Album of the Year
Kenny Chesney, ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey’
Lady Antebellum, ‘Need You Now’
Jamey Johnson, ‘The Guitar Song’
Taylor Swift, ‘Speak Now’
Dierks Bentley, ‘Up on the Ridge’
Zac Brown Band, ‘You Get What You Give’

Prediction: I am pulling for an upset here with Jamey Johnson’s The Guitar Song, but my gut says Taylor Swift will take the trophy

Single Record of the Year
Easton Corbin, ‘A Little More Country Than That’
Zac Brown Band feat. Alan Jackson, ‘As She’s Walking Away’
The Band Perry, ‘If I Die Young’
Lee Brice, ‘Love Like Crazy’
Kenny Chesney, ‘The Boys of Fall’
Miranda Lambert, ‘The House That Built Me’

Song of the Year
Easton Corbin, ‘A Little More Country Than That’
Zac Brown Band feat. Alan Jackson, ‘As She’s Walking Away’
The Band Perry, ‘If I Die Young’
Lee Brice, ‘Love Like Crazy’
Kenny Chesney, ‘The Boys of Fall’
Miranda Lambert, ‘The House That Built Me’

Prediction: I am combining my guess on these 2 because i think they go to the same tune. Lee Brice’s “Love Like Crazy“. Song lasted on the charts longer than any in history! That’s my choice!

Video of the Year
Blake Shelton Feat. Trace Adkins, ‘Hillbilly Bone’
Miranda Lambert, ‘Only Prettier’
Sugarland, ‘Stuck Like Glue’
Kenny Chesney, ‘The Boys of Fall’
Miranda Lambert, ‘The House That Built Me’

Prediction: Only because I laughed out loud the first time i saw it, Sugarland “Stuck Like Glue“.

Vocal Event of the Year
Zac Brown Band Feat. Alan Jackson, ‘As She’s Walking Away’
Emily West Feat. Keith Urban, ‘Blue Sky’
Loretta Lynn, Sheryl Crow and Miranda Lambert, ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’
Colt Ford Feat. Jamey Johnson, ‘Cold Beer’
Uncle Kracker Feat. Kid Rock, ‘Good to Be Me’

Prediction: ZBB and Alan. Bank on it!

Let me know what you think of my predictions, would love to hear yours.
