The 'Follow Your Arrow' hitmaker is up for Album of the Year, Female Artist of the Year and Song of the Year, while the Entertainer of the Year trophy continues to be dominated by male stars.

AceShowbiz - Kacey Musgraves has been nominated for multiple Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards hot on the heels of her Grammys success.

The "Follow Your Arrow" hitmaker had a huge night at the Grammy Awards earlier in February as her record Golden Hour won all four of the categories it was nominated for, including Album of the Year and Best Country Album.

Musgraves could continue her awards success at the ACMs, as it was revealed on Wednesday, February 20 that Golden Hour had been nominated for Album of the Year, making her the only female nominee alongside Dan + Shay for their self-titled record, Chris Stapleton for "From A Room: Volume 2", Eric Church for "Desperate Man" and Dierks Bentley for "The Mountain".

She was also nominated for Female Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for "Space Cowboy", which recently won the Best Country Song Grammy.

Other contenders for the Song of the Year award include Cole Swindell ("Break Up in the End"), Stapleton ("Broken Halos"), Bebe Rexha featuring Florida Georgia Line ("Meant to Be"), Dan + Shay ("Tequila") and Russell Dickerson ("Yours").

Musgraves will be up against Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde, Maren Morris, Carrie Underwood to be crowned Female Artist of the Year, while the male equivalent will be a competition between Bentley, Luke Combs, Thomas Rhett, Stapleton, and Keith Urban.

Taylor Swift, who left country music to focus on pop, also landed a nomination for Video of the Year for "Babe", her collaboration with duo Sugarland.

Controversially the Entertainer of the Year category continues to be a male-only battle, despite host Reba McEntire voicing her disappointment about the lack of female representation for the night's coveted prize last year (2018). This year's nominees are Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Stapleton, and Urban.

The 2019 ACM Awards will be hosted by McEntire from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 7.
