The 56th annual CMA Awards airs November 9……

Carrie Underwood and her family are no doubt celebrating after the nominations for the 56th annual CMA Awards were announced on Wednesday.

The Ghost Story singer was among some of the top country music stars who picked up nominations, with Carrie receiving three nods for Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, and Musical Event of the Year for her duet with Jason Aldean, If I Didn’t Love You.

Carrie has garnered 40 career nods since 2006. This year marks her 16th nomination for Female Vocalist, a trophy she’s claimed five times.

She is a four-time nominee for Musical Event and picked up her fifth nomination for the night’s most coveted trophy, Entertainer of the Year.

Meanwhile, Miranda Lambert has double reason to celebrate as not only did she also secure three nominations, Album of the Year (Palomino), Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, but she is also the most nominated female artist in CMA Awards history with 61 nominations.

Yellowstone newcomer and country music singer Lainey Wilson had the biggest reason to smile because she topped the list with six nominations as a first-time nominee.

Her six nods include Album, Female Vocalist, Music Video, Musical Event, New Artist and Song of the Year.

Other top nominees include Ashley McBryde, Carly Pearce, and Chris Stapleton, along with songwriter and producer Shane McAnally, each with five nominations.

Cody Johnson and songwriter/producer Josh Osborne collect four nominations each. Luke Combs, HARDY, and Midland, secure three nominations apiece.

Vying for the night’s highest honor, reigning Entertainer of the Year Luke is nominated again in the category alongside Miranda, Chris, Carrie, and Morgan Wallen.

The 56th Annual CMA Awards, hosted by Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning, will air live from Nashville on Wednesday, November 9 on ABC.
