It was announced Monday morning that Miranda Lambert leads the CMT Awards with six nominations, including two for video of the year for her hit song “Automatic” and her duet with Keith Urban, “We Were Us.” Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line trail right behind with five nods each.
Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard are up against themselves in two categories: collaborative video of the year for their hits “This Is How We Roll” featuring Bryan and the “Cruise” remix with Nelly, plus duo video of the year for “‘Round Here” and “Stay.” (In case you’re keeping track, yep, that’s four different videos FGL released this year.)
Urban and Taylor Swift tied with four nominations each, while Blake Shelton and Hunter Hayes each nabbed three. Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Eric Church, Kacey Musgraves and Lady Antebellum all secured two nominations apiece.
