Taylor Swift and Blake Shelton have topped the 45th Country Music Awards 2011 nomination, bagging five nominations each a piece among 12 categories. The 45th Annual Country Music Awards nominations for the year 2011 have been announced and stars, who have topped the nominations, are Jason Aldean and Brad Paisley, besides Taylor Swift and Blake Shelton. The four stars would compete with each other in the category of ‘Entertainer of the Year’, along with Keith Urban. Shelton and Jason have made it to the list for the first time for the coveted category, among the newly released nominations list.

The five nominations of the total 12 categories have been announced live by the Band Perry and Jake Owen on ABC News ‘Good Morning America’. However, the seven remaining categories were announced by Thompson Square and Jerrod Nieman at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley and Jason Aldean were followed by Zac Brown Band and The Band Perry with four nominations each and Miranda Lambert, who rocked the last year, managed to bag just two nominations at Country Music Awards 2011. The award show would be aired on ABC live on November 9, 2011 and Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley would host the show.
