Miranda Lambert has made CMA Awards history with a record nine nominations. That's the most garnered by a female artist, and she'll be able to celebrate with close friend Lady Antebellum and fiance Blake Shelton. Lady A earned the second most nominations with five and Shelton was next with four, tied with Zac Brown Band.

Lambert and Dierks Bentley announced nominations in five categories Wednesday morning on "Good Morning America." The first seven categories were announced Tuesday in Nashville.

Lambert, Lady A, Zac Brown Band, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban were nominated for entertainer of the year, the Country Music Association's top award.

The CMA Awards show will be aired live on ABC on Nov. 10 in Nashville.
