Lambert, 27, and fellow country singer Dierks Bentley showed up to Good Morning America on Wednesday to announce the nominees, and it just so happened to turn out that Lambert herself earned nine nods, making her the most-nominated female country artist ever.

Lambert -- who is up for Album of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Vocal Event of the Year, Entertainer of the Year, Video of the Year, Single of the Year and Song of the Year -- was as surprised as anyone.

"I didn't even think I was eligible for nine categories," she said.

"I've been sipping the excitement like a fine whiskey," Bentley said on GMA. "I'm so excited."
