AceShowbiz - The inaugural American Country Awards has announced its nominees. Lady Antebellum, along with new artist Easton Corbin, dominate the list with seven kudos each, Carrie Underwood follows with six, and Josh Turner scores five.
Antebellum are up for top honors of four categories, Artist, Single, Album and Music Video. In Artist of the Year, they compete against Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift, Underwood and Zac Brown Band. They face off Underwood and Lambert once again in Album of the Year which also lists Luke Bryan and Turner.
Touring Headline Package of the Year has the longest list of contenders but it excludes Antebellum's name. Brooks & Dunn, Toby Keith, Martina McBride & Trace Adkins, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, George Strait & Reba McEntire, Sugarland, Swift and Underwood are all vying for it.
