Nominations for the 44th annual Country Music Awards were announced in the U.S. on Wednesday. Country music queen Miranda Lambert makes history with nine nods.
Lambert joined country music singer Dierks Bentley on ABC's Good Morning America program to announce the nominees for Best Album, Best Female and Best Male Vocalists of the Year.
Lambert picked up the most nominations of any country woman in history, including Album of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Entertainer of the Year, Video of the Year, Single of the Year, and Song of the Year.
Miranda, Lambert, Singer, said, "You know this has really, just been an amazing year and you know, the CMAs are on my birthday which is on November 10th and I've never won a CMA so I have a pretty good chance or not, I don't know, hopefully I'll win a birthday present."
Her co-announcer Bentley received three nominations for Male Vocalist, Album of the Year and Musical Event.
Country duo Steel Magnolia received a nomination in the vocal duo category.
Meghan Linsey, Steel Magnolia Singer, said, "It feels incredible to be nominated. You know it's our first year out and this is our first CMA nomination. We actually got a chance to go to the awards last year and I remember it was our first awards show ever and I remember getting out of the car and just being so nervous."
Joining Steel Magnolia were country music stars Chris Young and Justin Moore, who announced the final nominees from Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.
The 44th Annual CMA Awards airs on November 10.
