The 2017 ACM Awards are just months away!

Lady Antebellum announced the nominees in five categories—Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Vocal Duo of the Year, and Vocal Group of the Year—on CBS This Morning; Nancy O'Dell and Kevin Frazier revealed the rest of the honorees online. Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley will co-host the show for the second consecutive year, which will be broadcast live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Apr. 2 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

Keith Urban leads with seven nominations, followed by Miranda Lambert with six nominations.

"I've been a musician since I was 6 years old," Urban tells E! News in a statement. "I just love writing songs, making records and touring. So for the ACMs to recognize Ripcord in such a big way today is humbling. I share these nominations with everyone in my life who made it possible—and a BIG shout out to all of our fans, who came out to see us on the Ripcord tour."

Urban adds, "Can't wait to play for you all again soon."
