Miranda Lambert leads CMT nominations

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Thanks to her friends in country music, Miranda Lambert leads the Country Music Television nominations by pairing with her husband Blake Shelton, her girl group Pistol Annies and good friend Keith Urban.

She's up for two individual awards for her video "Automatic," two for collaborating with the Annies on Shelton's song "Boys 'Round Here" and two more for singing with Urban on his song, "We Were Us."

Lambert will be hard to beat this year, with three videos in the top category of Video of the Year and two in the Collaborative Video of the Year category. Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line have five nominations each, and Urban and Taylor Swift are tied with four nominations.

Urban found out he had earned two nominations for his music video, as well as two more for working with Tim McGraw and Swift on "Highway Don't Care," while rehearsing on Monday for a musical benefit show for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

"Well, I love that those are for collaborative efforts," Urban said. "That's extremely gratifying."

Voting begins Monday at CMT.com and continues until June 1. The awards show will be held in Nashville, Tennessee, on June 4.
