Miranda's reveal comes a week after she received five Academy of Country Music nominations, including a record-tying 16th Female Artist of the Year nomination. Reba McEntire is the only female artist to be nominated in that category that many times.

Miranda will vie for the award against Gabby Barrett, Ashley McBryde, Maren Morris, and Carly Pearce. Miranda is also nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year, where she is credited as an artist and producer, and Video of the Year.

Miranda and Dierks have been friends for years

Luke Combs and Chris Stapleton are also nominees for Entertainer of the Year. A win for Miranda, Chris or Luke in that category will also see them clinch the coveted Triple Crown Award, which consists of an Entertainer of the Year win, plus wins in an act’s respective New Artist (male, female, or duo or group) and Artist (Male, female, duo or group) categories.

Carrie Underwood and Eric Church round out the category. Carrie is also nominated for Single of the Year, Video of the Year, and Music Event of the Year, for her collaboration with Jason Aldean.

This year's co-hosts Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett also received their first nods in the Male Artist of the Year and Female Artist of the Year categories, respectively.
