/Arista Nashville's Carrie UnderwoodMercury Nashville's Chris Stapleton and Arista Nashville's Cam lead the way with three nods each. That said, a brand new category will be revealed 6/1, so stay tuned for that, as it could change the game. Hosts, performers and presenters have also yet to be announced.

On a related note, Columbia Nashville's buzzing newcomer Maren Morris received a video-taped congratulation from the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders. We've reached out to them to see if they'd be up for announcing any of our upcoming news and have yet to hear back, but think of the possibilities!

The big show will air live 6/8 at 8pm ET.
