2013 CMT Music Awards nominations

The CMT Music Awards announced its list of nominees today and all our favorite people are on the list!

CMT Music Awards Nominees

2013’s CMT Music Awards should turn out to be a pretty interesting year. Our girl Miranda Lambert leads the pack of hopefuls with four nominations, but she’s not the only one. (Mildly) “Bad boy” Eric Church and fun-lovin’ Luke Bryan are tied with her for four nominations each.

The most exciting part of the night will definitely be when the video of the year is announced. The pack-leading trio are all up for the award along with Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Florida Georgia Line, Hunter Hayes, Jason Aldean, and (last, but certainly not least) Kenny Chesney. Uh, oh! Who will take it home?
