Eric Church brought in the most ACM Award nominations on Wednesday morning (Feb. 13) with seven. Hunter Hayes followed with six nominations, while Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift received five each.

Church’s nominations include male vocalist and album (Chief). In addition, he landed double nominations in the song category as writer and performer of “Springsteen,” which also appears on the single and video list. He appears on the ballot in the vocal event category as well, for “The Only Way I Know” with Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan.

Meanwhile, Aldean and Bryan are nominated in the entertainer category, along with Lambert, Blake Shelton and Swift. As previously announced, Bryan and Shelton will co-host the show.

Hayes received six nominations, including new male vocalist and video for “Wanted.” As the artist and producer of “Wanted,” he was also twice-nominated in both the song category and single category.

The nominees in the new artist category are drawn from the previously-announced individual winners in the categories of new male vocalist, new female vocalist and new vocal duo or group categories. Those final nominees are Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert and Jana Kramer.

Nominations were announced via social media with artists like The Band Perry and Sheryl Crow taking part. Starting on March 25, fans will be able to cast votes in the entertainer and new artist category. The ACM Awards will air live from Las Vegas on April 7 on CBS.

Hunter Hayes will be one of the main performers at the Taste of Country Music Festival at Hunter Mountain, June 13-15th.  Get your discounted early bird tickets here.
