    Okay, these are a combination of who I want to be nominated and who I think will. I wouldn't be surprised to see Carrie get a lot less nominations than I've predicted here, because we know our award show luck as of late. Also, keep in mind these were done up pretty quickly, without a ton of research put into it - I don't know much about the less mainstream country artists, so I may be missing a few people in there.


    Entertainer of the Year
    - Carrie Underwood
    - Kenny Chesney
    - Tim McGraw
    - Jason Aldean
    - Brad Paisley

    (I could see Taylor getting a nod just out of habit, but she wasn't even on the Top 50 Worldwide Tours of 2012 Pollstar list, so I don't think she deserves it this time. Same with Miranda.)

    Male Artist of the Year
    - Jason Aldean
    - Luke Bryan
    - Tim McGraw
    - Eric Church
    - Brad Paisley

    Female Artist of the Year
    - Carrie Underwood
    - Miranda Lambert
    - Taylor Swift
    - Jana Kramer
    - ?? (No idea about the fifth slot - Martina? Kacey Musgraves? Would love to see Kellie Pickler get that slot, but I doubt it.)

    Vocal Duo
    - The Civil Wars
    - Thompson Square
    - Love and Theft
    - ??
    - ?? (What other duos were active this year?)

    Vocal Group
    - Lady Antebellum
    - Little Big Town
    - The Band Perry
    - Zac Brown Band
    - Rascal Flatts

    New Artist
    - Hunter Hayes
    - Jana Kramer
    - Kacey Musgraves
    - Florida Georgia Line
    - Thompson Square

    Album of the Year
    - "Blown Away" - Carrie Underwood
    - "Tornado" - Little Big Town
    - "Hunter Hayes" - Hunter Hayes
    - "Red" - Taylor Swift (I hope this gets snubbed because it is not a country album, but I doubt it will.)
    - "Night Train" - Jason Aldean

    Single of the Year
    - "Blown Away" - Carrie Underwood
    - "Pontoon" - Little Big Town
    - "Springsteen" - Eric Church
    - "Wanted" - Hunter Hayes
    - "Over You" - Miranda Lambert

    Song of the Year
    - "Blown Away" - Carrie Underwood
    - "Over You" - Miranda Lambert
    - "Pontoon" - Little Big Town
    - "Fly Over States" - Jason Aldean
    - "Wanted" - Hunter Hayes

    Video of the Year
    - "Blown Away" - Carrie Underwood
    - "Over You" - Miranda Lambert
    - "Springsteen" - Eric Church
    - "Pontoon" - Little Big Town
    - "Over" - Blake Shelton

    (I'm wildly guessing on this category - I don't tend to watch many music videos, other than Carrie's.)

    Vocal Event of the Year
    - "Safe and Sound" - Taylor Swift & The Civil Wars
    - "Don't Rush" - Kelly Clarkson & Vince Gill
    - "The Only Way I Know" - Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan & Eric Church
    - "Dixie Highway" - Alan Jackson & Zac Brown Band
    - ??

    (I wonder if "Can't Stop Loving You" has a shot at a nod here, even though it wasn't a single yet during the eligibility period? Probably not.)

    ^^ Sending ideas into the cosmos can make it happen, you are adding to the PR - Carrie should be nominated for Album of the Year, Entertainer,Song and Single, Female and video for Blown Away - I really hope she gets at least a few nominations -

    considering the fact that the nom are going to be announced later this week i am pretty sure that the nominations are already sealed or something; i just don't want to get my hopes up Carrie SHOULD be nominated but i woulld not be surprised if she doesn't get a nom other than female vocalist since the country music industry is team blake and miranda at the moment.

    .
    I honestly have only heard one song from Pickler's album so I'm personally not remotely qualified to judge its quality. I know it's gotten plenty of critical acclaim but it's sales have been pretty poor. It's always an interesting question of whether awards should take sales into account or just go with perception of quality. Music awards have always been pretty subject to sales. Personally I think it should probably be a combination. If I were a voter I wouldn't necessarily vote for the biggest seller but I probably wouldn't vote for something with poor sales even if I personally loved it. I guess I would feel like it was my job to be something of a representative of the public.

    There are voters who take everything you said into consideration and then some including things that doesn't need to be taken into consideration but it's like that with every other category too, all of the awards show are what they are and have been like that forever.

    Jason, I think that Musgraves deserves the new female spot over Kramer too but I think the combined voters of the Kramer & Gilbert fans will give it to Kramer.

    I wouldn't be shocked if BA doesn't get any nominations. I think the only guarantee is FVOTY.

    Even if doesn't happen I like the chances of Musgraves being able to take that next step a lot better than Kramer's chances.

    I like Jana but I think that Kacey is much more talented.

    Agreed. For me, Kacey is more of an "artist" than Jana. Sometimes, I feel Jana is more a manufactured product than anything else. Yes, she does have a good voice, but her music is just OK for me.

    I think I learned from this site that the voters for award shows were industry people and the voters for ACMs, CMAs and the Grammys were the same industry voters(Can I get a clarification?) If I'm right, since Blown Away won Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance at the grammys, does that mean she'll have a better chance at the ACMs since as I said, the voters were the same?

    Any ways here are my predictions:
    Entertainer:
    Jason Aldean
    Blake Shelton
    Our girl Carrie Underwood
    Luke Bryan
    Eric Church
    And if they decided to have six people in EOTY(which they usually do) I'd put Taylor Swift
    ===Since this is fan-voted, it will really depend on us and our campaigns and stuff but Carrie will be a front-runner in the voting for sure... but we gotta look for Luke, Taylor and Jason too.

    Female:
    Carrie Underwood
    Miranda Lambert
    Taylor Swift
    Martina McBride
    5th slot for either Jana Kramer(had a radio success last year but not consistent), Kacey Musgraves(maybe), or Kelly Clarkson(he country single with Vince Gil isn't actually a hit but with a CMA nod, who knows?)

    Male:
    Luke Bryan
    Jason Aldean
    Eric Church
    Blake Shelton
    5th slot for either Justin Moore(not as known or successful as the others but he has some consistent radio success) or Brad Paisley(I'm not sure if SCZ is enough for a nom) or Keuth Urban

    Group:
    Zac Brown Band
    The Band Perry
    Rascal Flatts
    Little Big Town
    Lady Antebellum
    (If any one those are not nominted, I'd put Gloriana)

    Duo:
    Thompson Square
    Sugarland (didn't actually release anything but they et nominated every year)
    Florida-Georgia Line
    Love and Theft
    The Civil Wars

    Song:
    Over You - because of the "power couple" *cough cough*
    Blown Away - would a Grammy win make the odds better? and is also written by a "power couple" and by that I meant Josh Kear and Chris Tompkins
    Pontoon - it seems to be a favourite
    Wanted - the song that generate success for Hunter
    Springsteen - the song that gave Eric Church his breakthrough year
    Alternates: Even If It Breaks Your Heart, Home, Drunk On You

    Single:
    Pretty much just like Song...all those songs seemed to be big last year

    Album
    Blown Away
    Uncaged - again, a Grammy win wouldn't hurt
    Night Train
    Red - as much as I dont want to and I dont think it's deserving, I think it'll get a nod(Sometimes I would love to be wrong)
    Chief - I dont know if this album was nominated last year, I forgot
    Tailgates and Tanlines
    Alternates: any new album from big artists might get a nod

    Video:
    Blown Away
    Pontoon
    Springsteen
    Over You
    Drunk On You
    Alternates: once again any video from any big songs last year

    Vocal Event:
    Endless Love
    Don't Rush
    Let It Rain
    The Only Way I Know
    Safe and Sound
    Alternates: any collabs last year might get a nod

    I sure hope Carrie gets a lot of nods!

    (PS I'm not a pro so don't judge!)
