The Nominees are in for “Country’s Biggest Night!” Do You Agree with their Choices?

Country's Biggest Night
As the Country and Western faithful among you may already know, the nominees are now fully and officially in for the 2015 CMA Awards, and as you’d expect (almost too much, some would argue) your Mirandas, Carries, and Blakes all figure prominently among the night’s biggest hopefuls.

Many of the big nominees for what the industry likes to call “Country Music’s Biggest Night” were initially revealed during Wednesday morning’s episode of Good Morning America on ABC. The rest were shortly thereafter revealed on the CMA website .

Aerosmith belter Steven Tyler, embraced by the Nashville establishment earlier this year after the unexpected success of his big country single “Love is Your Name,” made the announcements alongside breakout singer-songwriter Kelsea Ballerini.

This year’s nominees are a mix of country’s untouchable megastars — Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, and of course good ol’ Garth Brooks — and some of buzzziest newcomers, such as Maddie & Tae and Chris Stapleton.

You can check out the full list of nominees below, but also be certain to visit PeekYou’s list of the 30 Top Country Singers on the Web; with a mix of all-time legends and fresher faces these are the 30 country crooners currently the most prominent, present, and influential in cyberspace.
