Miranda Lambert Tops CMA Nominations

The newly engaged singer rakes in nine nominations while Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and other country stars earn nods

It's a day to celebrate for country star Miranda Lambert, who scored a record-breaking nine nominations for this year's Country Music Association Awards -- the most a female artist has earned.

For the entertainer of the year award, Lambert will be up against Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban. The 27-year-old Texan is also nominated for female vocalist of the year, album of the year for Revolution, single of the year for both "White Liar" and "The House That Built Me," song of the year for "White Liar," musical event for "Bad Angel" with Dierks Bentley and Jamey Johnson, and video of the year for both "White Liar" and "House."

Making the news even sweeter, Lambert gets to share her excitement with fiance Blake Shelton, who is nominated for four awards of his own, including male vocalist of the year.

For Lambert, who won three trophies at the Academy of Country Music Awards and got engaged in May 2010 has been quite the year!

"I'm going to start putting 10 on everything," Lambert said. "It's my lucky number, I guess."

The CMA Awards show will air live on ABC on Nov. 10 in Nashville.
