2022 CMA Awards Nominations: The Most Blatant Snubs and the Most Refreshing Surprises
Women in country music might still be struggling to get airplay, but they're leading all nominees for the Nov. 9 ABC telecast. Lainey Wilson is the most nominated artist going into the 2022 CMA Awards. She has six, including her first Female Vocalist of the Year award nomination, which is a major show of support for her future as an artist.
Ashley McBryde and Carly Pearce follow Wilson with five nominations. Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert come in with three each, including nominations in the Entertainer of the Year category. Only one of these artists make our CMA Snubs and Surprises list — six is much more than anyone from Wilson's team could have hoped for!
Peyton Manning and Luke Bryan will host the 2022 CMA Awards on ABC. The Nov. 9th show begins at 8PM ET.
