LOS ANGELES (CMA) - The final nominations for the 38th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards were announced today with Toby Keith leading with eight nominations, Alan Jackson with six and Kenny Chesney and Trick Pony earning five each. Multiple ACM-winning superstar LeAnn Rimes, newcomer Jennifer Hanson and Access Hollywood’s Nancy O’Dell joined executive producer Dick Clark to read the nominations at a press conference this morning at Tiffany & Co. at Two Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

Brooks & Dunn, Lonestar and Wynonna have been named as the nominees for the second annual The Home Depot Humanitarian Award it was also announced this morning. The ACMs and Home Depot entered into an additional three year deal for this fan-voted award on the telecast. Reba McEntire was the first recipient of this award in last year’s show. She received a beautiful crystal award that was designed exclusively by Tiffany & Co., and a HomeDepot/KaBOOM! playground built in the town of her choice. Atoka, Oklahoma is the location for the Reba McEntire playground built in November of 2002. Voting will begin immediately on the Home Depot website for the winner of the 2003 Home Depot Humanitarian Award and will continue into the first two hours of the May 21 show. The winner will be announced in the final hour of the CBS telecast.
