The Eagles, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss and former Idols Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler were among those nominated for Country Music Association Awards today. Kenny Chesney led all finalists with seven noms, while Sugarland and George Strait each earned five nominations. The Eagles made the shortlist in the Vocal Group category, marking the first time since 1977 that the band picked up a CMA nomination in that category (they lost to the Statler Brothers). Alison Krauss has already won six CMA awards, but her Raising Sand cohort Robert Plant received his first nomination, as the duo was nominated for Musical Event. Krauss, Underwood and Taylor Swift will face off in the heated Female Vocalist category, while Pickler is up for the New Artist award.
