CMA Nominations: Maren Morris, Keith Urban, Luke Combs and More React to This Morning’s News

It’s good to be Maren Morris. She was most-nominated artist for the CMA Awards a total of EIGHT! Double what anyone else received.

Dan + Shay had a good morning, too: The duo earned four nominations including Song of the Year for “Tequila.”

Last year’s Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban was nominated once again

Carly Pearce showed her excited over her Best New Artist Nomination sharing a video on Instagram of the moment she found out the news saying

IN THE MIDDLE OF COOKING EGGS WHEN HE LOOKS AT ME AND SAYS “CONGRATS NEW ARTIST NOMINEE”. Y’all. I am FLIPPING OUT— I have dreamt of being nominated for this for years and truly can’t believe this. #cmaawards HERE WE COME!!!! (I definitely burned the eggs)

Luke Combs fans were sad to see he wasn’t nominated for Entertainer of the Year but he expressed his gratitude for this 3 nominations

Ronnie Dunn of Brooks and Dunn hilariously trolled himself on the news of their nomination saying “I thought we quit?”

More stars tweeted their thanks including:
