CMA Awards 2015 Nominations: Little Big Town and Eric Church Lead

Little Big Town topped the Country Music Association Awards nominations today, as their song “Girl Crush” helped the country group tie Eric Church for most nominations at the CMA Awards 2015, at five nominations apiece.

Little Big Town scored nods for album, group, musical event, music video and single of the year, while Church was nominated for entertainer, male vocalist, single, musical event and song of the year. Kenny Chesney and Miranda Lambert were tied for second-most nominations, with four apiece. The Voice coach Blake Shelton also scored several nominations as well, although not nearly as many as ex-wife Miranda Lambert. Blake landed nods for Male Vocalist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for his duet with Ashley Monroe, “Lonely Tonight”.
