What cheating scandal? Jason Aldean seems to have shaken off the bad press that has followed him after he was caught cheating on his wife with former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr by coming out the leader of the American Country Awards nominees.
The ACAs announced the country artists up for awards today, and Aldean managed to walk away with seven nominations. Among them include the coveted artist of the tear (he won in this category during last year's show), single of the year and song of the year (he has two songs up for this award).
Luke Bryan also has seven nominations, and following behind them are Lady Antebellum with six and The Zac Brown Band with five. Taylor Swift is also nominated for five awards, and she could walk away a big winner this year. She's up for artist of the year, female artist of the year, single of the year: female and touring artist of the year.
"Thank you so much for the AMA nomination and for making I Knew You Were Trouble #1 on iTunes!!!" Swift tweeted in response to the nominations. "That makes me so unbelievably happy."
The American Country Awards will be filmed at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas and will air live on Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. This is the third year of the fan-voted awards show.
