ACM Nominees 2012

Way to go Taylor Swift! We’re so proud of you!

Taylor Swift has done it again. Last year, the now 22-year-old country crooner walked away with the coveted Entertainer of the Year award at the ACM Awards and this year she’s the only female artist with a whopping three nominations, including Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist and Video of the Year (for “Mean”).

Kenny Chesney leads the pack with nine nominations, second only to Jason Aldean with six and Lady Antebellum with five.

We’re so impressed Taylor is the only girl nominated in the Entertainer of the Year category. Hopefully she takes it for a second year in a row! The 47th annual ACM Awards air April 1 on CBS from Las Vegas. See the complete list of nominees below.
