Country Music Television, otherwise known simply as CMT, announced the nominees for the 2015 Country Music Television Awards yesterday, and the lineup features the biggest names in contemporary country music, as well as a few special newcomers. Country sweetheart Carrie Underwood leads the nominations with five nods, including two for Female Video of the Year.

The CMT Awards are essentially country music’s equivalent of the MTV Video Music Awards, as both are held by a channel that specializes (or used to) in airing music videos. The CMTs are one of the biggest awards in the country music industry, along with the CMAs (Country Music Association Awards) and the ACMs (Academy of Country Music Awards). The winners of this award are voted by the fans, so those in love with the genre can get involved. The 2015 CMT Awards will air on the channel on June 10th starting at 8 PM EST. Read More
