Chris Stapleton, Eric Church & Maren Morris Lead 50th Annual CMA Awards Nominations
Eric Church, Chris Stapleton and Maren Morris are primed for the biggest wins when the CMA Awards go down Nov. 2 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville -- all three artists have five nominations each, leading the pack.
While Church has been knocking out hits for a decade, Stapleton and Morris both enjoyed their critical and commercial breakthroughs in the last year, so these nominations help solidify them as forces to be reckoned with in country music.
Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban all received four nominations, while Tim McGraw is up for three awards.
As per its long-running, beloved tradition, Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will co-host the 50th Annual CMA Awards on Nov. 2 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
