Lainey Wilson has the most nods for a female artist with six nominations including Female Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Single of the Year. She is nominated in more categories than any other artist. 

Most-awarded artist in ACM history, Miranda Lambert, received her record-breaking 17th Female Artist of the Year nomination (passing Reba McEntire with 16), as well as four other nominations. Her five nominations give her the opportunity to break more records following her Triple Crown Award presented at ACM Honors in the fall.
