It’s Chris Stapleton’s year: His first album made it to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this fall, he memorably performed with Justin Timberlake at 2015’s CMA Awards, is up for four Grammys, and he made his Saturday Night Live debut in January. Now, he’s getting ready for a big night at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

Stapleton nabbed four nods, including Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year, but Eric Church scored the most, with five nominations. See the full list below, and watch the ACM Awards when they air April 3 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
