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 list of nominees for Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2017 CMA Awards is an impressive roundup of new talent and industry superstars -- plus a little bit of country legend thrown in to boot!

Kelsea Ballerini's soon-to-be-released sophomore album is already shaping up as a strong follow-up to her record-breaking debut project, and Miranda Lambert's recent double album The Weight of These Wings includes the hits "Tin Man" and "Vice." They're both nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year against the legendary Reba McEntire, who was first nominated for the CMA Awards' Female Vocalist of the Year award in 1983 and has taken it home four times since then.

After winning New Artist of the Year at the 2016 CMA Awards, Maren Morris is in the running again this year for Female Vocalist of the Year. Rounding out the category is Carrie Underwood, the reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year.
