With six nominations, Tenille Townes leads the way going into this year’s Canadian Country Music Association Awards.

The Alberta singer is up for the fans’ choice award as well as female artist, entertainer, songwriter, interactive artist and video of the year. Last year, she picked up four awards at the CCMAs.

Townes took to Twitter to share her excitement about the fans' choice nomination. "Well goodness this is so cool!! Honoured to be a part of this category because everybody listening to and loving country music out there means so much to me," she wrote.

Hot on her heels are Dean Brody and Brett Kissel, who each earned five noms, including male artist, entertainer and fans’ choice. Dallas Smith, James Barker Band and the Reklaws have four nominations each.

The CCMA Awards will be taped in Oro-Medonte, Ont. (home of the annual Boots & Hearts festival) and in Nashville for broadcast on Sept. 27.
