The nominations for the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards (ACMs) were announced on Thursday morning, and Texas women are repping their state in force.

Of the five nominees for "Female Vocalist of the Year," three (that's more than half, if you're mathematically challenged) are from the Lone Star State: Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris and Kacey Musgraves.

Why Maren Morris is D-FW’s biggest breakout musician right now

If you're interested in artists from lesser states, the other two nominees for that category are Kelsea Ballerini and Carrie Underwood.

Miranda Lambert got six nominations overall, including Album of the Year (for The Weight of These Wings), Single Record of the Year (for "Vice"), Song of the Year (also for "Vice") and Video of the Year (yeah, you guessed it. For "Vice").

Maren Morris also scored six nominations, including Album of the Year (for her album Hero), Single Record of the Year (for "My Church") and New Female Vocalist of the Year

These nominations come hot on the heels of Morris' Grammy win for Best Country Solo Performance.

Because he couldn't let the women have all the fun, Willie Nelson is also representing, albeit in a smaller way. He was in the video "Forever Country -- Artists of Then, Now & Forever," which is nominated for Video of the Year. His name is not on the nomination itself, though.

The ACMs will air April 2 at 7 p.m. on CBS.
