If Sam Hunt's hotness on the Grammys red carpet caught your eye, prepare to clear your calendars for another swoon-worthy sighting of the 31-year-old country hunk. The nominees for the 51st annual Academy of Country Music Awards are here and, thankfully, Hunt is in the mix.

Miranda Lambert leads the pack of gorgeous ladies given a nod with three nominations in the Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, and Vocal Event of the Year categories. Don't think she's the only singer expected to wow on the red carpet in a head-turning dress, though. Carrie Underwood, Jana Kramer, Kacey Musgraves, and Kelsea Ballerini are the talents up against Lambert in the Female Vocalist category, while the award for country music’s Male Vocalist of the Year will go to Brett Eldredge, Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, or Jason Aldean. Thankfully, Hunt is in the running for Single Record of the Year.
