'Idol' champion Carrie Underwood lands two more CMA Awards noms

By Christopher Rocchio, 09/09/2009 

Carrie Underwood will have the opportunity to defend her female vocalist of the year title at the upcoming Country Music Association Awards ceremony.

The American Idol fourth-season champ has once again been nominated for the CMA's female vocalist of the year award, which she has claimed for three consecutive years.

Underwood will have a familiar foe in former first-season Nashville Star finalist Miranda Lambert, who has been defeated by Underwood in the category for two straight years.

In addition to Underwood and Lambert, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire and Taylor Swift also received nods in the category.

Underwood has owned the CMA awards since 2006 -- when she claimed female vocalist of the year honors and the Horizon Award, which is awarded to the industry's top new talent.

The following year Underwood once again claimed female vocalist of the year honors as well as the single of the year for "Before He Cheats."  Last year Underwood co-hosted the awards ceremony with Brad Paisley -- which she'll do again this year -- and also took home the female vocalist of the year award.

This year, Underwood's performance of "I Told You So" with Randy Travis also received a CMA nomination in the musical event of the year category.  In addition, Big & Rich -- which includes Gone Country star and former Nashville Star judge John Rich -- received a nod in the vocal duo of the year category.

The 43rd Annual CMA Awards ceremony will air live on Wednesday, November 11 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
