CMA Awards 2022: Complete List of Nominees and Winners

Something to sing about! Country music’s biggest stars will celebrate their career achievements at the 2022 CMA Awards on Wednesday, November 9.

CMAs 2022: Everything to Know About Nominees and More

Nominations for the awards ceremony were announced in September, with Lainey Wilson leading the pack and scoring an impressive six nods, including one for New Artist of the Year.

“I’m speechless. While I try to find the words just know that I’m blown away and so so honored and proud to be nominated,” the “Heart Like a Truck” songstress, 30, gushed via Instagram at the time. “Thank you to the entire country music community!”

Country favorites Chris Stapleton, Carly Pearce, Ashley McBryde, Miranda Lambert and Luke Combs also scored nominations at the CMAs. Maren Morris, for her part, earned a coveted Album of the Year nod for Humble Quest. However, she debated whether she would actually attend the big night.

Crossovers, Y’all! Stars Who Went Country

“I’m very honored that my record is nominated. But I don’t know if I feel [at] home there right now,” the “Bones” singer, 32, told The Los Angeles Times later that month following her social media feud with Brittany Aldean. “So many people I love will be in that room, and maybe I’ll make a game-time decision and go. As of right now, though, I don’t feel comfortable going.”

Morris added: “Some nights are fun. Others I’m just crawling out of my skin. I’m not good at those events because I’m awkward. But this time I kind of feel peaceful at the notion of not going.”

The Texas native publicly slammed Jason Aldean’s wife, 33, for sharing a transphobic social media message earlier this year. “If it’s confusing to you, it’s because you think we’re ‘fighting’ over politics. We’re not. This isn’t political,” Morris tweeted in August, shortly after Brittany compared a childhood “tomboy” phase to gender transitions. “We’re calling someone out for being transphobic and thinking it’s hilarious. It isn’t.”

While the boutique owner and Morris have yet to bury the hatchet, they have continued to back their own positions.

“I was extremely surprised. I, in saying my response, I never thought that there was anything wrong with it,” Brittany, who shares two children with her 45-year-old husband, said as she defended her actions during a September appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight. “I think I’m advocating for children. I think that children should not be allowed to make these life-changing decisions at such a young age. They are not mature enough.”

Country Music’s Biggest Couples

The Aldeans are also set to attend the musical festivities as the “Big Green Tractor” crooner scored a joint nomination with Carrie Underwood for their song “If I Didn’t Love You.”
