With the 2014 CMA Awards just around the corner, artists and fans alike are wondering who will walk home with a gleaming award ... and who will leave empty-handed. The artists nominated for Musical Event of the Year range from long-time country stars like Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton to younger (but just as well-known) artists like Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood.

Vince Gill and steel guitarist Paul Franklin are up for the award for 'Bakersfield,' the first duet album of Gill's career. And it will be an exciting night for Franklin, as he's also nominated for Musician of the Year. Country royal couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have a strong shot at the CMA Award for their gorgeous and nostalgic duet, 'Meanwhile, Back at Mama's.'

Lambert and Underwood's feisty 'Somethin' Bad' made everyone sit up and take notice, but Lambert has another nod in this category: 'We Were Us' with Keith Urban also garnered a nomination, giving the sassy songstress a whopping nine chances throughout the night at hauling home some hardware.

Finally, Rogers and Parton -- long-time friends and country stars -- are in contention with 'You Can't Make Old Friends,' but only one of these musical events of the year will take home the prize.
