George Straight led with eight nominations, including Entertainer of the Year and Top Male Vocalist.
Brooks and Dunn, Rascal Flatts and Carrie Underwood fell (in that order) just behind Straight’s lead.

Kenny Chesney received two nominations, one each for Entertainer of the Year and Top Male Vocalist. Other nominees for Entertainer in the year include, Brooks & Dunn, Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts. If Kenny is named Entertainer of the Year again, he will be one of only four artists to win the honor three or more consecutive time, joining Alabama (5 consecutive wins), Garth Brooks (4 consecutive wins) and Hank Williams Jr. (3 consecutive wins).

The show will be held in Las Vegas May 15th.
