NEW YORK (AP) – Taylor Swift will be battling the boys at the 2011 Country Music Association Awards.
The country starlet is up for entertainer of the year. She’ll be competing with Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Jason Aldean and last year’s winner, Brad Paisley.
Singer Jake Owen and country trio the Band Perry made the announcement Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Swift is also up for female vocalist of the year. Miranda Lambert, who won the honor last year, is also nominated again. So are Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride and Sara Evans.
Nominees for five awards were announced on “GMA.” Other nominations will be announced at a news conference in Nashville, Tenn., later Tuesday.
Underwood and Paisley will host the show for a fourth time. It airs live Nov. 9 here on WWAY NewsChannel 3.
