The 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards are Sunday, April 6th live from Las Vegas!  Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan are hosting again and it's sure to be a party!

The nominees for the ACM's were announced Wednesday morning. Miranda Lambert and Tim McGraw lead all nominations with seven a piece!

I am SO excited about my girl Miranda being nominated for Entertainer of the Year. It's been a long time coming! There are a couple of surprises that really caught my attention! (I had no clue Sheryl Crow was even considered country, much less a female vocalist of the year possibility?!?)
