Florida Georgia Line, Kelsea Ballerini and More React to 2018 CMA Nominations
The 2018 CMA Awards nominations were unveiled early Tuesday morning (Aug. 28), with Chris Stapleton receiving the most nominations -- five, including the prestigious entertainer of the year -- and several others including Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban earning three nods each.
Though the full list was announced before 9:00 a.m. Nashville time, country stars were up bright and early to see who was honored this year. Kelsea Ballerini, FGL, Brett Young and Chris Janson were some of the first to react to their nominations, with Little Big Town, Luke Combs and Maren Morris also expressing their excitement shortly after. Kelly Clarkson even took to Twitter to congratulate some of the nominees, including her recent "Keeping Score" collaborators Dan & Shay.

This has been an unbelievable morning. I’m humbled by the CMA nominations and thankful to everyone for believing in me. The opportunity to make music for a living is beyond anything I could’ve ever have imagined and for that I’ll forever be Grateful. pic.twitter.com/HBi1ZSRyUi— Chris Janson (@janson_chris) August 28, 2018
Had a ton of fun shooting my new music video for “She Got the Best of Me." It’s a trip down memory lane & shows how far we’ve come over the past few years. There are a lot of Easter eggs that I think y’all will enjoy finding. Let me know what yall think!https://t.co/ZT6Du5saVb pic.twitter.com/mAW2WclWR6— Luke Combs -- (@lukecombs) August 13, 2018
