2023 CMA Awards Nominations: Mistaken and Surprised.

The 57th Country Music Association Awards were announced on Thursday morning (Sept. 7), and the list of nominees for this year is a reflection of the popularity of various artists, with primarily recognizing emerging talents like Lainey Wilson, Jelly Roll, HARDY, and Jordan Davis.

The past year has seen the likes of Morgan Wallen’s “Last Night,” Luke Combs’ take on Tracy Chapman’S “Fasturgated,” and Zach Bryan’ newest single, “Something in the Orange,” become big hits while still being contenders for Billboard Hot 100.

As of 2022, Wilson’s “Heart Like a Truck” has been the top-performing singer-songwriter with nine nominations, while Jelly Roll and Combs and HARDY have received four nomination. Meanwhile, other artists, writers, or producers, such as Davis, Ashley McBryde, producer/mix engineer Joey Moi, “wait in the truck” songwriter/producer Jordan Schmidt, Chris Stapleton, Wallen, and musician/product developer Derek Wells earned three nomination wins.

The eligibility period for the 2023 show is set to July 1, 2022-June 30, 2024, and according to CMA rules, all music products eligible for consideration must have been released or achieved at their highest level during that time.

The 57th Annual CMA Awards, featuring Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning as guests, will be televised live from Nashville on Wednesday, Nov. 8 (8:00 – 11:00 PM/EST) on ABC. Below, you can see some of the most notable and unexpected moments from Thursday’s nominations.
