Click to find out who else is nominated and what everyone is nominated for! Who do you think is going to win big? The nominees for the 2013 Country Music Association Awards were announced today and it seems like it's going to be a battle between Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Blake Shelton this year!

Taylor, who has won Entertainer of the Year twice already, is up for the epic award again this year and she's the only female in the category! She's also battling Carrie Underwood, like always, in the Female Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year categories. She's up for six awards!

Carrie is hosting the show, with Brad Paisley, and is up tons of awards too. We totally think she's going to be the bigger winner this year, beating out Taylor in the categories they're both up for. It's not that we are hating on Tay, it just seems like her songs were stronger in the country music world his year, don't you think?

Taylor's not the only tough competition Carrie is up against, Blake Shelton could easily take over the awards show too! He's up against Taylor for Entertainer of the Year, one we could easily see him snagging too. We could totally see him winning Album of the Year against the two gals. He has had tons of hits on country music radio this year! He's up for five awards!
