Here Are the 2018 ACM Awards Nominations

From Lauren Alaina to Keith Urban, see the 53rd ACM Awards nominees!


It has been an exciting day already in Country Music! The 53rd ACM Awards nominations are here. We absolutely love seeing artists react to their nominations, and today has been no exception. Perhaps our favorite of this year is Carly Pearce, who found out she received her first nomination for New Female Vocalist of the Year while 35,000 feet in the air.

While on a Southwest flight, Pearce found out about her nomination, and took a photo with the whole plane to celebrate. The flight attendant even announced her nomination on the loudspeaker.

The ACM also announced that Reba will be back to host the 53rd ACM Awards for her fifteenth time. We can't wait to see her witty sense of humor take the stage as host live on April 15 on CBS.

Chris Stapleton leads the nominations with eight, followed by Thomas Rhett, Keith Urban, Shane McCanally, Miranda Lambert, and Maren Morris. We can't wait for a night of country music. See the full list of nominees below.
