The 2016 ACM Awards nominees were announced on Monday (Feb. 1), and, boy, will it be interesting to see who emerges with the trophies. Plenty of country artists received nods, but quite a few names appear two, three, four and even five times in the awards show's numerous categories.

Tried-and-true artists such as Little Big Town, Luke Bryan and Eric Church are multiple nominees at the 2016 ACM Awards, but there are also a surprising number of new artists who are up for more than one award. The photo gallery above is a complete look at the country stars who have multiple ACM Awards nominations to their names this year; you'll see Thomas Rhett, Maddie & Tae, CamSam Hunt and more.

The 2016 ACM Awards are set to air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., on April 3, beginning at 8PM ET on CBS.
