She’s up for female artist, female country artist, country single for “Mean,” music love song for “Mine,” choice break-up song with “Back To December,” and red carpet icon: female.

Other country artists up for nomination include Blake Shelton, with country single “Honey Bee,” male artist, and even his hit tv show The Voice is up for an award.  He competes in the male country artist category against Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban and Luke Bryan.
