 Taylor Swift likes to sing about how "Everything Has Changed.". But virtually nothing has changed for her when it comes to racking up ACAs nods.

After leading the pack at last year's American Country Awards but failing to win, the 23-year-old country star will have another shot at the podium after lassoing an impressive eight nominations, including Artist of the Year and Single of the Year for her song, "Begin Again."

Not far behind Swift with seven noms a piece are Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton and rising duo Florida Georgia Line. The latter two acts will compete for Album of the Year—The Voice judge for his latest release, Based on a True Story… and FGL for Here's to the Good Times.

While McGraw's notable nominations include "One of Those Nights," which was singled out in the Music Video of the Year category and "Highway Don't Care," which saw the crooner team up with Taylor and Keith Urban and which earned them each a Single of the Year: Vocal Collaboration nod.

The Fourth Annual American Country Awards will be hosted by Trace Adkins and NASCAR star Danica Patrick and is set to air live Fox from Las Vegas on Dec. 19.
