Ladies Lead CMT Noms

The Country Music Television Network has announced its nominees for the 2012 CMT Awards. As expected, some of the genre's biggest acts lead the pack including two talented ladies: Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert.

Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood's got the magic touch. The American Idol winner turned country superstar dominates this year's CMT Award nominees. Underwood scored five impressive nods, including video of the year.

But she's not the only woman leading the charge. Miranda Lambert is nipping at her heels with four nominations, going head to head with Underwood for video of the year and female video of the year.

Lambert's other half and The Voice judge Blake Shelton also got some love from CMT voters. He received three nominations for video of the year, male video of the year and CMT performance of the year.
