With the 2018 ACM Awards over, the next big event for the country music industry is the 2018 CMT Music Awards! The show, which will be hosted by Little Big Town, will take place on June 6 in Nashville. This year’s event is going to break barriers as far as music genre is concerned. There are lots of collaborative efforts between artists from various genres including country, pop, and R&B… which makes it so exciting!

The official list of nominees for the 2018 CMT Music Awards has already been confirmed. Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, and Florida Georgia Line are in the lead with four nominations each.

Voting for each category is currently open until June 4 on the CMT website. Keep in mind that the top 5 nominees for the Video Of The Year Award will be chosen on the day of the show. A special poll on Twitter will be conducted on the same day to determine the winner.

Aside from being one of the top nominees for this year’s CMT Music Awards, Carrie Underwood also holds the record for having the most CMT Music Award wins. She has 17 trophies in total! This year, her video for the song “Champion” (which was done in collaboration with Ludacris) earned her three nominations including the Video Of The Year Award.
