The 2017 CMA Awards will take place on Nov. 8, but before the stars align at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena for the 51st annual event, The Boot wants to know who our readers think will go home with the awards in each of the show's 12 categories. We've rounded up the details on all of the nominees, from Musician of the Year to Entertainer of the Year, and we want your input.

The CMA Awards' Album of the Year category encompasses more than an artist or a song: Its nominees represent the cumulative work of producers and artists, a complete product that wins the ears, hearts and minds of an audience.

At the top of the Album of the Year nominees list at the 2017 CMA Awards -- something of a surprise -- is The Nashville Sound by Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit. It's Isbell's very first CMA Awards nomination. Also in the running is Lady Antebellum's Heart BreakThe Weight of These Wings by Miranda LambertLittle Big Town's latest project The Breaker and  From A Room: Volume 1 by Chris Stapleton.

Who do you think should win Album of the Year at the 2017 CMA Awards? Vote in the poll below as often as once per hour through the end of the day on Nov. 5; The Boot will use the answers in our readers vs. staff predictions a few days prior to the ceremony.

The 2017 CMA Awards are scheduled to air on ABC on Nov. 8, at 8PM ET; the ceremony will take place live at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will host the ceremony for the 10th year in a row.
