2012 CMA Awards Nominations: Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert Among Contenders


Taylor Swift, Blake Sheldon and Miranda Lambert were just some of the names listed on the 2012 Country Music Association nominations, announced early Wednesday morning in New York.

Swift, 22, is up for the biggest award of the evening, Entertainer of the Year, an award she has won twice already.

This year, she'll face off against four men: Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton.

And speaking of Shelton, the Voice cohort picked up an impressive four nominations -- the same amount his wife, Miranda Lambert, received. They'll both compete against one another in the coveted category of Album of the Year.


Eric Church led the overall nominations, with five.

The 2012 CMA Awards air live Nov. 1 on ABC.
