ACM Awards predictions

Slide 1 of 12

By Phyllis Stark Special to MSN MusicWith several uber-competitive categories this year, and the potential for more than a few spoilers, the Academy of Country Music Awards should make for some entertaining viewing even in between the expected top-drawer performances. Among the closest races to watch are a battle of the blondes in the female vocalist category, and an engaged couple going head to head for Best New Artist. We're also predicting a whole lotta love (and trophies) for Taylor Swift. Click through the gallery for our picks on who should win and who will win in 11 hotly contested categories. The 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 7 at 8 p.m. ET on the CBS Television Network. Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan will team up for the first time to host.
