The 2021 CMT Music Awards are around the corner.This year’s nominations are led by two of today’s most popular acts: Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris.Each of the two country music powerhouses earned themselves four nominations. Two of Morris’ nods are shared with her husband, Ryan Hurd, their duet “Chasing After You,” while a pair of Lambert’s nominations are for her Elle King duet “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).”Kane Brown and Kelsea Ballerini, hosts of this year’s broadcast, both clocked in with three nominations, as did Little Big Town and Mickey Guyton.MIRANDA LAMBERT AND MAREN MORRIS LEAD 2021 CMT MUSIC AWARDS NOMINATIONSNotably, controversial and scandal-embroiled singer Morgan Wallen didn’t nab a single nomination this year. He’s had some trouble earning awards and nominations since being caught using a racial slur on camera, and CMT has removed his videos from their programming.

The video of the year prize, the year’s biggest award, initially nominated 14 musicians, though the nominees are paired down in the days and weeks before the show until only three finalists remain. Currently, Lambert, King, Brown, Ballerini, Carrie Underwood, John Legend, and Keith Urban are among those that still have a shot.This is a unique year as well, as genre-bending tunes take center stage, such as Underwood and Legend’s gospel collaboration and Urban’s “One Too Many” with P!nk.Here’s a look at the 2021 CMT Music Award nominees:Video of the year (finalists shown in italics)
