The Academy of Country Music just announced the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards nominees — and the only controversy here is how competitive the categories are! LOLz!
Country newcomer Chris Stapleton leads the pack this year with Eric Church — who scored five nominations each!
And let's not forget about Miranda Lambert – who is up for Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, and Vocal Event of the Year for her performance of Smokin' and Drinkin' with Little Big Town!
Like we said — the competition is as FIERCE as the red carpet is going to be!
