CMT Music Awards

It’s that time of the year again! The CMT Music Awards are upon us once again, celebrating a year’s worth of fantastically created music videos representing country music’s finest songs. The party of the summer airs June 5th at 8/7 CT on CMT.

Returning to co-host this year’s show is actress Kristen Bell, who will be joined by country music superstar, Jason Aldean. Bell is best known as the star of the hit television series, Veronica Mars, and has had a string of box-office hits, including, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, When In Rome, You Again, and Hit and Run. Aldean is currently headlining his sold out Night Train Tour. In the past three years, he has become one of country music’s biggest stars, selling 6.5 million albums and producing nine number-one singles, including the hits, “She’s Country”, “My Kind of Party”, and “Take a Little Ride”. This is the first time Aldean has hosted a major awards show.

Eric Church, Luke Bryan, and Miranda Lambert lead the nominations with four each; Lambert scored three solo nominations and one group nod with her band, Pistol Annies. Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, and Florida-Georgia Line follow with three nominations, and nine other starts, including Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, and Brad Paisley, earned two apiece.

A complete list of nominees can be found below. Fans can vote for their favorite videos at cmt.com until June 2nd.
