Gabby Barrett is a nine-time finalist and the female artist with the most nods, such as prime new artist.

And despite the fact that Morgan Wallen is a finalist 6 moments across five types, the state star — who was caught expressing the N-Word on video clip — will not likely be showing up at this year’s ceremony.

“Morgan Wallen is a finalist this yr centered on charting. As his new perform does not align with our core values, we will not be like him on the exhibit in any potential (undertaking, presenting, accepting),” dick clark productions explained in a assertion.
