Maren Morris and Chris Stapleton are the most-nominated artists at the 2021 ACM Awards. The Academy of Country Music announced the full slate of nominees for the upcoming awards show on Friday morning (Feb. 26).

Morris and Stapleton each received six 2021 ACM Awards nominations, though Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde and Thomas Rhett aren't far behind: Lambert extends her record as the most-nominated woman in ACMs history with five new nominations, while McBryde and Rhett each have four.

Also nominated at the 2021 ACM Awards are Jimmie Allen, Kane Brown and Mickey Guyton, who received four nominations among them. John Legend earned a nod as well, for "Hallelujah," his duet with Carrie Underwood, which makes 2021 the first year in which four Black artists are nominated in a single ACMs season.

Kelsea Ballerini and Brothers Osborne, who announced six of the 2021 ACM Awards categories' nominees on CBS This Morning, are nominated this year, too: She is up for Female Artist of the Year, while the sibling duo will compete for Duo of the Year and Album of the Year. The full list of 2021 ACM Awards nominees is below.

The 2021 ACM Awards are set to air live from Nashville's Bluebird Cafe, Grand Ole Opry House and Ryman Auditorium on April 18. The show will air on CBS beginning at 8PM ET, and will also be available to stream live and on demand via Paramount+. Additional details, including a show host or co-hosts and a list of performers, have yet to be announced.
