The countdown is on to the big reveal of this year’s CMA nominees. The big day is Monday and Dustin Lynch, Brothers Osborne and Lauren Alaina will unveil the contenders for the 51st Annual CMA Awards Monday on ABC’s Good Morning America.  And Thomas Rhett admits the big announcement makes him nervous.

“It’s nerve-wracking!” he laughs. “It’s really nerve-wracking watching those nominations. And then when you actually do get nominated, then all you do is sit there and you’re like, ‘So I’m in the category with him? That means I’m automatically gonna lose that award.’ There are just so many talented people in our genre.” But he also feels the same way every other artists feels. That it’s an honor just to be considered. “Those awards shows…they are so fun. And when you do win them, they’re great,” TR says. “But honestly, just to be nominated in those categories is very special as well.”

So make sure you are watching GMA Monday Morning at 8am to figure out who is nominated this year! Then the awards are happening in November in Nashville.
