CMAs 2017: Full List Of Country Music Association Award Nominees Here!

While Miranda Lambert leads the pack of nominees for the CMAs 2017 with five nominations, she was snubbed for the biggest award of the night: Entertainer of the Year. The Country Music Association Awards announced their nominees for 2017 recently and it was a male-dominated field for that big category, even though Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood are selling out venues. Check out the full list of nominees for the CMA Awards 2017 below.
