Miranda Lambert leads CMA nominations

Miranda Lambert’s reign is hardly over.

Monday, the current Female Vocalist of the Year was nominated for five Country Music Association Awards, including the one she has won more than any other female vocalist.

The one that slipped away: Entertainer of the Year. That category is dominated by men (Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban).

Little Big Town and Urban came in second with four nominations each.

And, the nominees for Best Song mirror the nominees for Best Single.

By category, here are the nominees:
