To celebrate this Labor Day holiday, country music stars Lauren Alaina, Dustin Lynch and Brothers Osborne appeared on “Good Morning America” to announce this year’s nominees for the 51 st annual Country Music Awards.

It will come as no surprise to fans that Miranda Lambert topped the bill this year with a whopping five nominations including Single of the Year for “Tin Man, ” Music Video of the Year for “Vice, ” and she scored her fourth nomination for Album of the Year thanks to “The Weight of These Wings.” As if that wasn’t enough, the 33 -year-old star is also up for Female Vocalist, a category that People notes she’s won a record-setting six consecutive times between 2010 and 2015. In 2016, the commendation went to Carrie Underwood.
