Nominees of 43rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards


Kenny Chesney


Kenny Chesney is on the lead with eleven nods while others go beyond seven counts.

Kenny Chesney rules way above his peers in dominating the Academy of Country Music Awards nominations. The country crooner who released his eleventh studio album "Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates" last year, receives as many as 11 nods while others go below seven nods.

Among the categories Chesney is nominated in are Top Male Vocalist and kudos for his album, single, video and song. Chesney, who is a reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year is again running for the same category this year and should he win the title again, he will be in tie with Garth Brooks as the prime academy winner in the category.

Next in line is Rodney Atkins who pockets six nominations, among others are Top Male Vocalist, Song of the Year, Video of the Year for "Watching You" and Album of the Year. Brad Paisley who was present to announce the nominations, along with Big & Rich and Sugarland are contending for four categories while new and more contemporary faces like Taylor Swift and Miranda Lambert are up for three nods each.

This year, the awards will allow fans to choose the winner of Entertainer of the Year and the voting line will be opened starting from May 5. The annual event that enters its 43rd year, will be hosted by Reba McEntire again, and air May 18 live from Las Vegas' Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on WTVF-5 at 7 P.M. Paisley and Carrie Underwood will serve as the co-host of the event.
