The 55th Annual CMA Awards will be handed out live on ABC TV in Nashville on Wednesday night (11/10), and for nominees, one award stands out and is coveted almost as much as winning the night’s top honor of “Entertainer of the Year” and that is “Album of the Year.”

Five artists are vying for the 2021 Album of the Year honor, which honors the making of records. This year’s nominated albums are both from 2020 and 2021. The nominee’s list features two of the Entertainer nominees as well.

Here is the Album of the Year nominees.
