It looks like 2011 is starting where 2010 left off for Miranda Lambert.  She and Ronnie Dunn announced this year's Academy of Country Music Award Nominations this morning and she received 7 nods.  She's up for Entertainer and female vocalist of the year as well as single and song of the year for "The House That Built Me."

The Zac Brown Band and Kenny Chesney each received 5 nominations followed by The Band Perry and Taylor Swift with 4.
There are a few big surprises - no Rascal Flatts nomination in the Top Vocal Group category and Jason Aldean is up for the Entertainer of the Year  and Male Vocalist.  Toby Keith, who hasn't been nominated for awhile is also up for the top honor
