Lionel Richie, Jimmy Buffett, Sting, Vince Gill & Steven Tyler Receive CMT Award Nominations

Today, there are four country awards shows, the CMA's, ACM's, American Country Awards and the CMT Awards whose nominations were announced today.

Unlike the other three shows, the CMT's are awarded for videos or performances on television shows rather than the actual recordings. This is the 11th time the awards have been given.

Leading the nominations is Carrie Underwood with five followed by Miranda Lambert with four, two for her solo work and two as part of the trio the Pistol Annie's.

None of the major categories have veteran artists among the nominees but Lionel Richie, Jimmy Buffett, Sting, Vince Gill and Steven Tyler do get nods in the Collaboration and Performance categories.
