Eric Church picked up a bevy of nominations- 7 to be exact. The country singer leads in receiving the most nominations. He basically received a nomination in every category where he was eligible.

However, he ended up not receiving a nomination for entertainer of the year.

Hunter Hayes, who recently performed his hit song “Wanted” at the Grammy’s, received 6 nominations.

Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift have the most nominations of all the solo female acts, receiving five each. If Swift were to win the entertainer of the year award, it would make her the first woman to win the award three times.
