Thomas Rhett and Maren Morris lead the way with five nominations each for ACM Awards 2020

28 February 2020 Featured news


The nominees for the ACM Awards 2020 have been released, with Thomas Rhett and Maren Morris both set for a busy night with five nominations each.

Rhett has been nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, Album of the Year for ‘Center Point Road’ and Video of the Year for Remember You Young, while Morris is up for Female Artist of the Year, Album of the Year for ‘GIRL’, Group of the Year for her role in The Highwomen and Musical Event of the Year for her featuring role on Miranda Lambert’s Fooled Around and Fell in Love.

Due to how ACM Awards work, if an artist is a producer for an Album of the Year nominee, it technically counts as two awards as producers get one too – hence why both have five nomination.

Elsewhere, Carrie Underwood and Eric Church are both up for Entertainer of the Year, though without Garth Brooks like at the CMA Awards, while Underwood is also nominated for Female Artist of the Year. Church meanwhile, has Some of It nominated for Song of the Year.

It will also be a busy night for Dan + Shay and Old Dominion, who are nominated for four awards each – Dan + Shay for  Duo of the Year, Song of the Year, Musical Event of the Year and Video of the Year (the latter three all for 10,000 Hours featuring Justin Bieber), while Old Dominion are up for Group of the Year, Single of the Year, Song of the Year and Video of the Year (the last three all for One Man Band).
