Songstress Faith Hill led the pack of nominees for the 34th annual Academy of Country Music Awards with six, including top vocal event for her duet with hubby Tim McGraw on “Just to Hear You Say That You Love Me.”

Garth Brooks, Brooks & Dunn and Steve Wariner each nabbed four noms for the so-called Hat Awards with Brooks, McGraw, George Strait, Shania Twain and Brooks & Dunn all competing for the coveted entertainer of the year trophy, an award that typically goes to Brooks.
