Taylor Swift and Kacey Musgraves Lead CMA Awards Nominations

Taylor Swift and newcomer Kacey Musgraves lead the nominations for the 47th Annual CMA Awards with each country music star receiving six nominations.

Fans will be able to watch which awards the two may take home when the 47th annual CMA Awards show, hosted this year by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, is broadcast live November 6th at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

"My first single, 'Merry Go 'Round' went to radio exactly a year ago today. That perspective is really mind-blowing," said Musgraves. "I'm honestly so humbled right now thinking about this past year and how greatly country music has embraced that song and me.

"The love I'm feeling from these nominations is something that I could have never expected and I couldn't be more thankful and overwhelmed in this moment."
