Taylor Swift will go for her third entertainer of the year award at this year’s Country Music Association Awards.

The two-time winner is nominated in the category with previous winners Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley and also Jason Aldean and Blake Shelton.

Aldean and Luke Bryan announced the first five categories of CMA nominees on “Good Morning America.” They’ll finish out the list later Wednesday morning at a news conference at the B.B. King Blues Club and Grill in New York City. Lady Antebellum was a late scratch after weather delayed the group’s flight.

The 46th annual CMA Awards will air live Nov. 1 on ABC from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Carrie Underwood and Paisley will host.
