The 2020 CMA Awards nominations are here and yes, there are some surprises. Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year all include unexpected but deserving nominees.

Luke Combs and Carly Pearce announced the first batch on Tuesday (Sept. 1) morning on ABC's Good Morning America. Later, Ingrid Andress and Gabby Barrett revealed the remaining candidates for the 2020 CMA Awards on social media. All four artists would find themselves among the nominees before the morning was over. Combs also was a three-time nominee in 2019, winning Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year for "Beautiful Crazy."

Garth Brooks is the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year, but per his request, he's not on the ballot in this category in 2020. Instead, find Eric Church, Combs, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban up for the biggest award of the night.

The 2020 CMA Awards will air live on ABC at 8PM ET on  Nov. 11. More information about CMA Awards performers, presenters and who will host the awards show will come shortly. The full list of 2020 CMA Awards nominations is below.

Remember: The best way to watch the 2020 CMAs is on TV, with ToC on your phone!
