Amongst country music's top stars you'll find a captain, several staff sergeants, a corporal and an Army Ranger. All four branches of the United States military are covered by country hitmakers.

The 2014 CMT Music Awards nominees have been announced, and Miranda Lambert is the woman to watch, leading nominations with an astounding six nods, while Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line are tied at five apiece.
Country music icon Willie Nelson has been a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame since 1993. And now, he's been honored with another induction -- this time, in the inaugural class of the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame.
