McEntire earned nods for entertainer, female artist, video and single. She also picked up two vocal collaboration noms.

Cyrus received a nom for male artist and Montgomery for single of the year. Both were given noms for star of tomorrow. Brooks earned an entertainmer of the year nom, while Wynonna was tapped for vocal collaboration and female artist.
