The 2013 CCMA Nominees are announced

The Canadian Country Music Award nominees were announced today. Alberta's Gord Bamford lead the nominees with seven nominations and Dean Brody follows with five.

Bamford was nominated for Album of the Year, Fan Choice, Single of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Video of the Year, Record Producer of the Year and Male Artist of the Year.

The men really are the stars of the CCMAs...where's all my Canadian female singers at? Come on ladies. Thank God there is a Female artist category or it would be the boys show all night long.

The more prominent categories show a lady in a group, someone featured in a song and good old Terri Clark.
