The ACM Awards are almost upon us and it's sure to be a great show.

The ACM Awards are always a little bit rowdier than other award shows in the country music world. They also like to throw a few more wrenches in things when it comes to the nominees.

There were some big surprises, some head-scratching and some full on tears of happiness when this round of nominees was announced.

Now, the show is just a few days away. I decided to make some final predictions about who I think will win big this year and I am going out on a limb and throwing in some wildcards! I can't wait to see how things go.

Check out my final predictions below:

By the way - a few winners have already been announced. It is tradition with the ACM Awards to give out a few trophies prior to the show, namely in the "new" categories.

Brush up on all of this year's nominees here. Don't forget to watch the show live on CBS at 7 p.m. Sunday night!
