Country singer Miranda Lambert definitely has something to smile about this morning as it was announced that she was nominated for nine CMA awards, the most ever for a female.  Others who were nominated for multiple awards include Lady Antebellum with five, Lambert's new fiance Blake Shelton with four, and the Zac Brown Band, also with four.  Miranda's total fell one short of the record 10 by Alan Jackson in 2002.  The only other artist to get nine nominations is Merle Haggard, so Lambert is in rare company indeed.  If you were expecting to hear Taylor Swift's name here, you can listen to the crickets.
