Miranda Lambert

leads the Academy of Country Music Awards with an outstanding seven nominations, including another nod for Top Female Vocalist and Song of the Year with “The House That Built Me.”  But it was her nomination for the highly-coveted Entertainer of the Year award that left Miranda speechless. Miranda said “It’s hard for me to grasp that I’m in that category, because I haven’t done some of the numbers, and some of the amazing things that some other artists have.  But I’m just thankful that I’ve got my foot in the door as a nominee.”  Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown Band each receive five nominations, with Zac Brown receiving four additional nods. The Band Perry and Taylor Swift each receive four nominations. Lady Antebellum, Lee Brice, Easton Corbin, Alan Jackson and Keith Urban each receive three nominations. The Academy of Country Music Awards airs April 3rd live from Las Vegas.
