Maren Morris, meanwhile, reacted to her four total nominations in the post-surgery haze of having her wisdom teeth removed. 

Similarly, Russell Dickerson heard about his nomination for New Male Vocalist of the Year and shortly thereafter went to the dentist. 

Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne, Kelsea Ballerini and more also reacted to their nominations on social media. 

Who would've thought a picture from last year's @acmawards would be the perfect photo to share how we feel about my TWO nominations this year. I could not be more excited. God is good and so are ACM noms. 🙏🏻🙌🏼 #NewFemaleVocalist #VocalEvent
