Taylor Swift at the 2011 Country Music Association Awards

UNP ImageTaylor Swift will be battling the boys at the 2011 Country Music Association Awards.

Swift is one of four country stars with five nominations, including the CMA's top award, entertainer of the year. She'll compete with Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Jason Aldean and last year's winner, Brad Paisley, in the entertainer category.

Aldean, Shelton and Paisley were the others with five nominations apiece. Zac Brown Band and The Band Perry were next with four.

The nominations marked a breakthrough for Aldean and Shelton, both first-time entertainer nominees and long overlooked at awards shows until recently. Like Paisley, Swift and Urban have each won an entertainer trophy before.

Singer Jake Owen and country trio The Band Perry made the initial announcement of seven categories Tuesday on ABC's Good Morning America and Jerrod Niemann and two-time nominee Thompson Square announced the remainder of the nominees later at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

Swift is also up for female vocalist of the year with Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, Sara Evans and Miranda Lambert, who won the honour last year on her 27th birthday.

Paisley and Carrie Underwood will host the award show for a fourth time on November 9.
