CMT Nominations: Lambert leads field
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Thanks to her friends in country music, Miranda Lambert leads the Country Music Television nominations by pairing with her husband Blake Shelton, her girl group Pistol Annies and good friend Keith Urban.
She's up for two individual awards for her video "Automatic," two for collaborating with the Annies on Shelton's song "Boys ‘Round Here" and two more for her duet with Urban on "We Were Us."
Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line have five nominations each, and Urban and Taylor Swift are tied with four nominations.
Lambert will be hard to beat this year, with three videos in the top category of Video of the Year and two in the Collaborative Video of the Year category.
Voting has begun at CMT.com and continues until June 1. The awards show will be held in Nashville, Tennessee, on June 4.
