2019 ACM Awards nominations are in! The Academy of Country Music has revealed the nominees for April's 54th ACM Awards, with host Reba McEntire revealing the lucky artists and groups Wednesday when she appeared on CBS This Morning. Watch McEntire announce the nominees by playing the video above, then get your tickets to attend the ACM Awards here at AXS.

The top category Entertainer of the Year is almost entirely the same as it was last year. Jason Aldean will be going for his fourth consecutive Entertainer of the Year Award, while the only nominee who wasn't held over from 2018 is Garth Brooks.

Miranda Lambert is once again nominated as Female Vocalist of the Year; that's a category she's won every year since 2009, and surprisingly McEntire wasn't nominated with her. But will Kacey Musgraves, who just made a splash at the Grammy Awards by winning multiple Grammys including Album of the Year, be able to end Lambert's long winning streak?

And in Male Vocalist of the Year, Chris Stapleton is also nominated again to defend the award he's taken home two of the last three times. Stapleton is also nominated for Entertainer of the Year. So while there hasn't been a lot of turnover in the Academy of Country Music's nominations, there's also no doubt that they have nominated the best and most well-known names in country music. The only question left to answer is who will win?

The 54th ACM Awards take place Sunday, April 7 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. ACM Awards tickets are on sale now through the AXS event page; ticket prices and more information are available on the event page. Tickets to other ACM Awards-related events, including the official after party, are also available now here at AXS.
