At last year's CMA Awards, Miranda Lambert's Platinum was the winner of Album of the Year, which is given to the artist and the producer. But this time around, there's a brand-new roster of artists nominated for the big prize. Who do you think will come out ahead?
While maintaining an inimitable knack for telling stories through his songs, Corb Lund has pushed himself -- both musically and personally -- on his latest studio album, Things That Can't Be Undone, out now via New West Records. Working with producer Dave Cobb brought with it a new creative process, and the result -- a beautiful blend of classic country and Americana sounds -- might just be, as it stands right now, Lund's masterpiece.
Scotty McCreery was thrust into the spotlight in 2011, when he was crowned the Season 10 winner of American Idol. Since then, he has released two studio albums, plus a Christmas album, and has toured with artists such as Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts, as well as headlined his own shows. Still, the 22-year-old concedes that the idea of people being interested in his personal life is difficult for him to understand.
A common theme in country music this past year has been "let the girls play," and thanks to the #SaladGate controversy, one thing has become clear: Country music fans want to hear the genre's female artists.

Casey Beathard and Dave Turnbull wrote "The Boys of Fall," which Kenny Chesney released in July of 2010 as the first single from his 12th studio album, Hemmingway's Whiskey.

It also earned a Top 20 (No. 18) spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Inside, Beathard tells The Boot about the inspiration for the tune.
Brantley Gilbert recently earned his fourth No. 1 song with "One Hell of an Amen," from his 2014 sophomore Just as I Am album. The singer says that, out of all of his hits, this one means the most to him because of its message.
