The 2013 CMA Awards are right around the corner, and that means it’s time for The Boot’s yearly awards predictions.

This year’s predictions pit the staff of The Boot against the readers in a friendly competition to see who comes closer to getting this year’s biggest winners right.

Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves and Blake Shelton lead the nominations this year, while many top stars have scored multiple nominations.

Voting began in late September and closed yesterday. We’ve tabulated the results, which are included with each category below. Take a look at each category to see how your predictions compare with ours.

The CMA Awards will air on Wednesday, Nov. 6. Check back in on Nov. 7 to see who called it closer.
