2024 ACM Awards: Luke Combs, Lainey Wilson, Kelsea Ballerini & More Country Stars Score Nominations

Nominations for the 59th annual ACM Awards have been announced!

Luke Combs leads the talented pack of nominees with eight nods, including for Album of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Single of the Year.

The “Fast Car” singer is also up for the night’s top award, Entertainer of the Year, alongside Kane Brown, Jelly Roll, Cody Johnson, Chris Stapleton, Morgan Wallen and Lainey Wilson.

An Entertainer of the Year win for either Luke or Lainey would be a milestone in their careers, as they would clinch the ACM’s coveted Triple Crown Award. The honor goes to those who have previously won New Artist of the Year and Artist of the Year in their respective categories, with Entertainer of the Year as the third and final marker of achievement.

While Luke has the night’s most nominations, he’s followed closely by Megan Moroney and Morgan Wallen, who have scored six apiece.

Cody Johnson, Chris Stapleton and Lainey Wilson all received five nominations, while Jelly Roll and Jordan Davis each got four.
