Miranda Lambert leads the nominations for this year's Country Music Awards (CMAs) with five nods.
The 33-year-old star is in the running for both Single and Song of the Year for her track 'Tin Man', as well as Music Video for the Year for 'Vice' and Album of the Year for 'The Weight of These Wings'.
Miranda also scored her eleventh nomination for Female Vocalist - a crown she'll be hoping to regain after previously taking the prize in consecutive years from 2010-2015 - but missed out on a nod in the coveted Entertainer of the Year category.
That accolade will go to either Keith Urban - who, along with Little Big Town, is up for four prizes - Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Eric Church or Chris Stapleton.
The nominations were revealed on 'Good Morning America' on Monday (04.09.17) by reigning CMA Vocal Duo of the Year, Brothers Osbourne, and rising stars Lauren Alaina and Dustin Lynch.
T.J. Osborne joked he and his brother John were relieved to be up for Vocal Duo of the Year again, as well as Music Video of the Year for 'It Ain't My Fault'.
He quipped: "I think just even being nominated is really cool. I will say, being the reigning duo winner, I was hoping that we would be at least nominated this time or you would have seen a complete meltdown."
And Lauren was overjoyed to get her first-ever CMA nomination, in the New Artist of the Year category.
She said: "I'm really trying not to cry because I feel like I always cry. I'm blown away. I'm really excited and it's an honour."
The 51st Annual CMA Awards will see Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood return as hosts for the 10th time.
The ceremony takes place at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on November 9 and will broadcast live on ABC.
