    IMPORTANT NOTE:  Awards counts for artists reflect categories in which they have been recognized as individuals or as part of their duo or group. In some cases, an artist may receive more than one nomination which factors into their official count. For example, Chris Young received two nominations in the Album of the Year category—one each as artist and producer—because that category recognizes both.
