Lambert leads the nominees with eight, including Entertainer, Album and Song of the Year. Dierks Bentley has seven nominations, including Male Vocalist, Album and Song of the Year. Chesney is up for four, including Song, Single Record and Video of the Year, and Urban scored a nod for Video of the Year for ‘Cop Car.’
