Kenny Chesney


Long list of this year's CMA Awards nominees reveals that Kevin Chesney dominates almost all categories by packing seven nods, including Entertainer of the Year.

Kenny Chesney leads 2008 Annual Country Music Awards by grabbing seven nominations. The singer is nominated as Male Vocalist of the Year, competing with Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, George Strait, and Keith Urban.

Announced on Good Morning America with special guest appearances from Taylor Swift and Rascal Flatts, Kenny is also among Entertainer of the Year nominees, which have the same composition as Male Vocalist nominees except for the exclusion of Alan and the addition of duo Sugarland. On top of that, Kenny's work for single "Don't Blink", where he teams up with Buddy Cannon in the production house, is also praised with Single of the Year nomination.

Kenny's domination is followed by Jennifer Nettles, who receives six nominations, including Song of the Year for single "Stay" from her band's 2007 effort "Enjoy the Ride". Meanwhile, Jennifer's band, Sugarland, receive five nominations, one of which is Music Video of the Year for Shaun Silva-directed "Stay" video. Furthermore, nominated as Female Vocalist of the Year, Carrie Underwood will have a stiff competition with Taylor, Alison Krauss, Miranda Lambert, and Martina McBride.

A full list of this year's nomination can be found on CMA's official website. The 42nd Annual CMA Awards winners will be announced on November 12 and broadcast live from the Sommet Center in Nashville on ABC.
