Chris Young leads nominees for 2022 Academy of Country Music Awards – Music News

Chris Young is the one to beat at the upcoming 2022 Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards.
On Thursday, officials from the country music organisation announced the nominees for the 57th annual prizegiving, which is set to take place at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on 7 March.
The Man I Want to Be hitmaker garnered seven nominations, including Album of the Year and Single of the Year. He shares three of his nods with fellow artist and collaborator Kane Brown for their song Famous Friends.
Walker Hayes and Chris Stapleton both received five nominations, while Miranda Lambert scored a record-making 16th Female Artist of the Year nod, as well as four other nominations.
Lambert, Stapleton, Eric Church, Luke Combs, and Carrie Underwood are to compete for Entertainer of the Year, and interestingly, Ryan Hurd and Maren Morris are the first married couple to be nominated in the same year since Tim McGraw and Faith Hill in 2017.
