This morning the County Music Association unveiled the nominations for the 44th Annual CMA Awards, and Kenny Chesney earned one nod… for Musical Event of the Year. With Kenny taking the year off from major touring, it’s not a surprise that he’s absent in many of the categories that he’s been nominated in and won the past few years, like entertainer of the year.

Here’s the other nominees in the Musical Event of the Year category:

  • “Bad Angel” – Dierks Bentley with Miranda Lambert & Jamey Johnson
  • “Can’t You See” – Zac Brown Band featuring Kid Rock
  • “Hillbilly Bone” – Blake Shelton featuring Trace Adkins
  • “I’m Alive” – Kenny Chesney with Dave Matthews
  • “Till The End” – Alan Jackson with Lee Ann Womack

When the final nominations were tallied, Miranda Lambert led the list of finalists with nine nominations – the most for any female artist in the history of the CMA Awards. Alan Jackson received 10 nominations in 2002. Prior to that, Merle Haggard held the record with nine in 1970. Lady Antebellum garnered the second most nominations with five.

Here’s who’s up for Entertainer of the Year this year:

  • Lady Antebellum
  • Miranda Lambert
  • Brad Paisley
  • Keith Urban
  • Zac Brown Band

The 44th Annual CMA Awards” will be hosted for the third time by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood and broadcast live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Wednesday, Nov. 10 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network.

    I can’t stand Paisley!

    Why did Taylor get nominated last yr and not this? What about Carrie? I am shocked Kenny does not get a nod, even wihout touring. Carrie got a nod and win last yr and did not stage a tour at all. She was in the studio recording her album/
    Does not make sense at all.

    Ryan you don’t like Paisley? You’re the first person that I’ve heard not like him.

    Rosi, I’m surprised Taylor wasn’t nominated too

  • Deb Brinkman

    I doubt it if I even watch it this year. 1 nomination for Kenny? That’s not right!

  • Rosi

    I doubt Kenny will even attend.. I think ‘hillbilly bone’ will win.
    He never looks like he wants to be there. He may go just to perform whatever latest single he has released
