ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Blake Shelton may have gone into the Academy of Country Music Awards as a host, performer and two-time nominee, but he had another priority: being a cheerleader.

Shelton’s wife, fiery country star Miranda Lambert, was the top contender with eight nominations, including entertainer of the year – an award she has yet to win.

Shelton says “it needs to happen, it’s imperative that it happens.”

Co-host Luke Bryan, Garth Brooks, Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line are also up for the top prize. Lambert says she already feels like a winner because she’s nominated for the coveted award.

The ACM Awards will be Sunday at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Performers and attendees including Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, George Strait and Christina Aguilera.
