The list of nominees reads like a who's who of in country music -- Miranda Lambert is up for nine awards, Lady Antebellum for five, The Zac Brown Band and Blake Shelton each up for four and Dierks Bentley nominated for three.
We'll have to wait until tonight to learn the winners (and see all the hot designer dresses,) but that won't keep us from offering our winner predictions.
This is a tough one, but we'll have to give it to Lady Antebellum for their crossover success on Need You Now. This easy-on-the-eyes trio understands what it takes to create successful music and it's likely they'll be awarded for that talent.
Taylor Swift, hands down. The curly-haired singer's third album, Speak Now, went platinum in less than a week. If that's not enough to win her the award, nothing is. Plus, we just want to see if she's bringing Jake Gyllenhaal to the awards.
We'd like to lean toward perennial favorite George Strait, but this year's award will likely go to Blake Shelton.
Lady Antebellum, definitely. Their album Need You Now went triple platinum this year.
We're going with the Blake Shelton/Trace Adkins collaboration for Hillbilly Bone. Both are hot on the country scene and this song received more airplay than the other nominees.
Zac Brown Band. You couldn't turn on country radio in 2010 without hearing Chicken Fried or another one of their songs. They'll win it.
Lady Antebellum. Do we even have to explain it?
This will likely go to Brooks & Dunn since the superstar twosome officially retired this year.
Need You Now by Lady Antebellum. They'll likely sweep all their categories.
Need You Now, of course.
This will be a toss-up between Hillbilly Bone and Need You Now. We can't choose, though of course we're leaning toward Lady A.
It's anyone's guess, but we're thinking Randy Scruggs.
