Country men: we like 'em, love 'em, gotta have 'em in country music. And these five nominees for Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2014 CMA Awards are the real deal.

Dierks Bentley has the ammunition of his eighth studio album, 'Riser,' shooting in his favor, as well as a successful tour that included not one, but two legs, with the second announced in August. Not surprisingly, Luke Bryan is a contender in this category as well. Also nominated for the night's biggest awards, Entertainer of the Year and Album of the Year, it will be an exciting (and hopefully rewarding) evening for the 'Play It Again' hitmaker.

Eric Church is one of country's favorite rebels, and in addition to being up for Male Vocalist of the Year, his second No. 1 album, 'The Outsiders,' also garnered an Album of the Year nod. Blake Shelton is an obvious favorite -- after all, he nabbed the win in this category the past two years.

But don't count Keith Urban out. His most recent record, 'Fuse,' garnered some major critical acclaim, and he's been a touring machine. Urban's Light the Fuse Tour had a whopping three legs, and his 2014 Raise 'Em Up Tour kicked off early this summer.
