She racked up six nominations, edging out Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line for the top spot.
Lambert earned two nods for her hit song "Automatic" and a total of four nominations for duets with Keith Urban and husband, Blake Shelton.
Lambert has three songs in the running for the coveted video of the year award.
And Usher fans rejoice -- the wait for new music is over!
The singer dropped his latest single "Good Kisser" Monday, along with a new music video.
It features Usher's signature dancing and a hidden talent -- drumming.
Usher's eighth studio album releases later this year.
Something that won't release anytime soon -- singer Gregg Allman's biopic "Midnight Rider."
According to Variety, Allman is suing to stop production of the film.
He claims the production company lost its rights when it failed to begin filming by the end of February.
This is just the latest problem plaguing the film, following the death of a camera assistant.
