Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, and Jason Aldean will be the high fives at the CMA Awards in November after scoring five nominations apiece on Tuesday.

The quartet will battle it out for the coveted Entertainer of The Year honor, which show co-host Paisley won last year. Swift is also up for Female Vocalist of the Year with Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, Sara Evans and Miranda Lambert, who won the honor last year, on her 27th birthday.

Lambert's husband, Shelton, will defend his Male Vocalist of the Year award this year against Paisley, Keith Urban, Aldean and Kenny Chesney, who landed three nominations.

The Band Perry and the Zac Brown Band, who each landed four nods, will compete for the Best Vocal Group prize with Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts and Little Big Town at the country music awards, which will be held in Nashville, Tennessee on November 9.

Swift was so ecstatic about her nominations, she tweeted, "Thanks to you guys and the CMA voters, we got 5 CMA NOMINATIONS THIS MORNING!!! I am flipping out!!!"
