The official nominees for the 47th annual Country Music Association (CMA) Awards were announced live this morning on ABC’s Good Morning America. As a CMA Member, I was lucky enough again this year to vote in the first two rounds and got a choice in the final nominees. I’ll get to vote for the winners of each category as an industry member as well.

There were some surprises, and some regulars, who made it to the final ballot this year. Check out the full list below and let us know what you think of this year’s nominees – do you think someone was snubbed? What shocked you? Who are you cheering for?
