This year, the nominees for CMA Female Vocalist of the Year are all worthy of the honor. Three out of five of the nominees, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert and Lee Ann Womack, are country music living legends that have won 15 CMA Awards already between the three of them. Kacey Musgraves has two awards to her name, but an impressive 12 nominations. Last year, we’re not even sure if Kelsea Ballerini was at the show, so it’s even more impressive for her to be in the category.
Lambert has taken home the last five CMA Female Vocalist trophies, but Womack and Underwood have claimed it before. The race is anyone’s this year, so let’s take a look back at our favorite past CMA Awards performance from the Female Vocalist of the Year nominees.
