The nominations list of this year's Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards has been unraveled during a press conference at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. Miranda Lambert dominates the pack with seven nods, Kenny Chesney, along with Zac Brown Band, follows her with five, and Taylor Swift trails behind them with four.

Lambert and Swift fight off each other in a bid to win top honor, Entertainer of the Year. They are vying for the title against Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban. They once again meet in a battle for Top Female Vocalist of the Year along with Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood and Lee Ann Womack.

The other common thing about Lambert and Swift is that the two female singers get double nominations in one of the categories. The former is up for Video of the Year for her "The House That Built Me" and "Only Prettier" clips, and the latter is nominated for Album of the Year as an artist and producer.

As for Chesney, he is competing against Lambert in Video of the Year and his work as an artist and producer leads him to face off Swift in Album of the Year. His fourth and fifth nominations are both for Single Record of the Year, thanks to his work as an artist and producer in track "The Boys of Fall".

ACM Awards will be broadcast live on CBS from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on April 3 at 8:00 P.M. ET. Reba McEntire and Lambert's fiance Blake Shelton will co-host the 46th annual awards show. Fans can vote for the winners of Entertainer of the Year, Top New Solo Vocalist and Top New Vocal Duo or Group on ACM official website. The winner in each of the two newcomer categories will move on to compete for Top New Artist, which is also a fan voted category.

I can't believe that Carrie Underwood only got one nomination. Carrie and Taylor are by far the two biggest female performers in country music today!
