Taylor Swift Nominated for Six CMA Awards! Plus See the Full List of 2013 Nominees
Country's biggest night is around the corner and just today, the Country Music Association released the full list of the 2013 nominees for the 47th annual Country Music Awards Awards. Keeping with tradition, Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will be upholding their posts as the evening's hosts for the sixth year in a row at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville (we can't help but wonder how many dresses Underwood will change into this year!). Among the nominees, Taylor Swift and newcomer Kacey Musgraves lead the list with six nominations each, while Swift is the only woman nominated for the Entertainer of the Year award (she won twice before) proving that yes, girls do run the world! Scroll down to see the full list of nominees—including Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, and more—and tune in on November 6th when the CMAs air live on ABC.
