Stapleton received a total of seven nods, including Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year, while Aldean is up for Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. Thomas Rhett, meanwhile, is competing for Album of the Year, New Male Vocalist of the Year and Single Record of the Year.
Bryan, who is nominated for Entertainer of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year, will be a busy guy the night of the ceremony: In addition to his nominations and his performance, he will also be co-hosting the show with fellow nominee and performer Dierks Bentley.
