Six years after her last studio album, ACM Award-winning artist Sara Evans is back in a big way. She is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year, an award she won in 2005. The lead single from her latest album, "A Little Bit Stronger," quickly became one of the most successful singles in Evans' career. The song was a multi-week #1 single, making Evans the only female artist in 2011 to hold the #1 position for two consecutive weeks on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart as well as Country Aircheck. "A Little Bit Stronger," written by Luke Laird, Hillary Lindsey and Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott, has been certified platinum by the RIAA.

Carrie Underwood is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year, marking her seventh consecutive nomination in this category, which she has won three times. She is also nominated for Vocal Event of the Year for "Remind Me," her duet with Brad Paisley. Having won a total of 10 ACM Awards, Underwood is also a two-time Entertainer of the Year. In 2010, she was honored with the ACM Triple Crown, an award presented to an elite group of country music artists who boast wins for New Artist, Male/Female Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year.

Keith Urban is a seven-time ACM Award winner, including two wins for Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year as both artist and producer for Be Here, and Vocal Event of the Year for "Start A Band," his duet with Brad Paisley. In 2010, Urban was honored with the Academy's prestigious Jim Reeves International Award, in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the acceptance of country music worldwide.

Beth Behrs stars as Caroline Channing in this season's #1 new comedy, "Two Broke Girls," on CBS. The show was named Favorite New Comedy at the 2012 People's Choice Awards. A lifelong country music fan, Behrs not only joins the 47th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS as a presenter, but also as its special social media correspondent.
