Taylor Swift is set to shine alongside Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert as Country Music Award nominees are announced

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

Leader of the pack: Taylor Swift has garnered three nominations for the upcoming Country Music Awards

Stars are gearing up for the Country Music Awards later this year and the genre’s favourites are yet again leading the nominations.
Taylor Swift received three nominations including one for best female vocalist.
She will compete in the category against Miranda Lambert – who has four nods, as does her husband Blake Shelton.
The country music couple share one nomination for song of the year for Over You.
Shelton will compete in the male vocalist category against Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Keith Urban.

Country couple: Blake Shelton and wife Miranda Lambert each scored four nods and Miranda will compete against Taylor for best female vocalist

Meanwhile female vocalist category pits Lambert and Swift against Kelly Clarkson, Martina McBride, and Carrie Underwood.
But it is singer Church, whose career has rocketed over the past year, who swept the 46th annual CMA nominations today with five nods, including one for best album for his hit, Chief.
Church, 35, also scored nominations for best male vocalist along with best song, single and video for Springsteen, which tells the story of a couple who met at a Bruce Springsteen concert.

Sweeping the board: It was Eric Church who received the most recognition with five nominations

Jason Aldean, singers Dierks Bentley, Kenny Chesney, and the group Little Big Town each earned three nominations.
The CMA nominees included several crossovers from other genres, including pop star Clarkson and rapper Snoop Dogg, who was nominated for musical event of the year, an award for a collaboration by artists who don't normally perform together.
Snoop Dogg was nominated for Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die, which he recorded with Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Jamey Johnson.
It was a return to the country scene for both Clarkson and Snoop Dogg.
Clarkson previously recorded Because of You with Reba McEntire, while Snoop Dogg recorded Kentucky Jelly.

Hosts with the most: Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will host the awards ceremony for the fifth year running

Another crossover pop star, Lionel Richie, and country star Darius Rucker, were nominated for musical event for Stuck On You.
Paisley and Underwood will host the CMA Awards for the fifth year running on November 1, which are set to be broadcast live from Nashville on ABC.
Elsewhere singer Lee Brice, who recently scored a hit with A Woman Like You, was nominated for best new artist, vying against singers Brantley Gilbert, Hunter Hayes and country music duos Love and Theft and Thompson Square.
He told Reuters: ‘I'm so grateful for the nomination.
‘I'll try not to be too nervous but I'm sure when the day comes I'll be biting my nails off.’

Surprise mentions: Interestingly Snoop Dogg and Kelly Clarkson are each up for awards

Other rising stars are hoping for success and Little Big Town, whose song Pontoon has been a mega-hit this summer, was nominated for vocal group of the year as well as best music video and single.
Frontwoman Karen Fairchild couldn’t contain her delight as she said: ‘We grew up watching the awards and I can so visualise my living room, me watching that show as a kid with my popcorn.’
She added: ‘That we get to stand up on that stage, it's such an honour.’
Little Big Town competes against the Eli Young Band, Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry and the Zac Brown Band for best vocal group.
