    What are the criteria for the AMAs? Are they based on some type of statistic to get to the nominees and then fan voted after that?

    Yes, you got it right.

    The nominations have always been based on sales, airplay etc... "Success" in general.

    Since 2006, the winners have been chosen by fan vote.
    From 1973 to 2005, the winners were picked by the same people who still select the nominees.

    from the AMA website

    "American Music Awards nominees are based on key fan interactions as reflected in Billboard Magazine and on Billboard.com, including album and digital singles sales, radio airplay, streaming and social activity."


    I think Carrie will get noms for Fav country female and country album

    ^ criteria is sales and chart success- then it is fan voted. Carrie will likely just get 1 nomination for Female country artist since her album is not out yet. She is not eligible for anything else like artist of the year etc as she was in between albums.

    Taylor will sweep this with 8 wins. Calling it now.

    GH#1 can be nominated for Favorite Country Album.

    Unlike the Grammys, any type of album can be nominated.

    I remember when we fans couldn't vote for the AMAs. LMAOOO

    It was really like "the Grammys for sales".

    But that's still the idea. Dick Clark created the AMAs so success could also be awarded.
    Pretty much like the Billboard Music Awards.

    I love the AMAs and I'll vote till my fingers bleed.

    I don't know if Carrie GH will be nominated for country album, I don't think it's was one of the top 3 sellers.
    I want a performance slot. I am 99.1% sure she will perform this year.

    I was under the impression that Carrie's GH Album was the best selling hits album of all genres of the last ten years. I thought that was reported by Billboard. Maybe I've got things mixed up?
    Carrie's hits album was a double disk so sales number gets multiplied by 2. Would that make her a contender?

    It's moved almost 800 k, with it being a double disc.How many country CDs have moved that many in the last year?
    Plus the criteria as posted above isn't just sales.

    I recall an article saying Carrie's GH1 had the best debut sales for a greatest hits album in years.

    I thought the 800K was only for certification purpose. They still only count 400K actually units sold the awards. (I hope I am making sense, not 100% sure. ).

    Best debut sales for any GH of any genre in 6 years and best debut sales for a female GH in 9 years.

    Eligibility for the AMAs runs from December 1 of the previous year to September 1 of the current year.

    Which country albums are the best-selling ones of that period?

    My guesses: Carrie's GH, Luke Bryan's album and Zac Brown Band's album.

    I think you are right that they only count actual units sold (+ streaming maybe) for sales. The double disc only counts toward the RIAA certification, so GH could easily be platinum in the near future. However, most of these chart awards such as Billboard and AMAs are based on sales, not certifications. There isn't really a chart for most certified, although it is certainly something PR teams can use when promoting an artist. However, with that said, since 100% of the GH sales are in the eligibility period, I am not sure what the other top selling country albums are for the time period. Obviously Luke as others have said and likely ZBB.

    This wikipedia page has the top country albums released in 2015 so far. Guess I'll have to go back to 2014 to find the December releases. You can sort by release date to make it easier. Possible contenders for AMA Country Album could be these, although I have no idea as to the sales for some of these. It seems like only ZBB and Luke would have sales that would be over a few hundred thousand.

    Edit: I checked December 2014 and Carrie was the only "top" country album released that month. Others listed that month were not top sellers. So, unless one of those other guys sold more than Carrie from Dec 1 to Sept 1, then she should be a shoe in.

    Carrie Underwood - GH Decade 1
    ZBB - Jekyll & Hyde
    Tyler Farr - Suffer in Peace
    Kip Moore - Wild Ones
    Luke Bryan - Kill the Lights
    Kacey Musgraves - Pageant Material
    Easton Corbin - About to Get Real
    Darius Rucker - Southern Style
    Kelsea Ballerini - The First Time
    Chris Stapleton - Traveller

    You are probably right. I hadn't even thought about looking at albums that weren't released during the period, but still had large sales. Eric Church's the Outsider has scanned over 1,000,000, but I don't know how much of that was December-September. Looking at Roughstock and for the Top 5 Country Albums as of August 31, 2015, he was selling 8300 weekly.
