Today in “Good Morning America,” the nominations for the 51st Annual CMA Awards were announced live. Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban and Little Big Town topped the list of nominees.

Lauren Alaina, Dustin Lynch, and Brothers Osborne announced the nominees in 12 CMA Award categories live from the “GMA” studio in New York’s Times Square.

Alaina heard her name read among the nominees for new artist of the year — her first CMA nomination, and it was for sure, very overwhelming.

“I’m really trying not to cry, because I feel like I always cry,” she said, adding she hoped her parents were awake to hear her name. “I’m blown away. I’m really excited, and it’s an honor.”

The Osborne Brothers, received two CMA nominations, they even joked about what would have happened had they not been nominated for vocal duo of the year, an honor they took home at last year’s CMA Awards.

“I think just even being nominated is really cool,” he said. “I will say, being the reigning duo winner, I was hoping that we would be at least nominated this time or you would have seen a complete meltdown.”

The 51st Annual CMA Awards will be hosted for the 10th time by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. The show begins at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
