Kenny Chesney leads this year's Academy of Country Music award nominations with nine nods. The Tennessee native recieved six nominations as an artist -- Entertainer, Male Vocalist, Album, Single, Song and Vocal Event of the Year -- and three as a producer -- Album, Single and Vocal Event of the Year. His No. 1 single, 'You and Tequila,' featuring Grace Potter recieved three nominations.

Joining Kenny in the Entertainer of the Year category are Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton and Taylor Swift. The winner in that category, along with the New Artist of the Year, will be chosen by you -- the fans. For the fourth year, you can cast your vote for both categories online.
