When the list of nominees came out in September 2020, Lambert was on the list for seven total nominations for the CMA Awards. This pushed her past Reba with a total of 55 career nominations. Lamberts nominations for 2020 are in categories that she has previously won in her career, with the exception of one. Lambert has yet to win the top prize of CMA Entertainer of the year. Will she knock that one out of the park this year? We will see what happens on November 11 on ABC beginning at 7:00pm!
