Maren Morris and Miranda Lambert led all nominees when the nominations for the CMT Music Awards were announced Thursday morning. The annual celebration of country music videos and performances airs June 9th on CMT.

Morris and Lambert each earned four nominations, including two apiece in the top category of Video of the Year: Morris for her video “Better Than We Found It” and for “Chasing After You,” her collab with husband Ryan Hurd; Lambert for “Settling Down” and her duet with Elle King, “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).” Morris and Lambert, both Texas natives, are also up for Female Video of the Year and Collaborative Video of the Year.

Kelsea Ballerini and Kane Brown co-host the CMT Music Awards and also compete — both scored three nominations. Little Big Town and Mickey Guyton have three nominations as well.

While Video of the Year is the show’s centerpiece, it’s the CMT Performance of the Year category that is typically the most interesting. This year’s field includes Brooks & Dunn and Luke Combs for “1, 2 Many,” Jimmie Allen and Noah Cyrus’ “This Is Us,” and Nathaniel Rateliff and Margo Price’s “Twinkle Twinkle,” from the Americana artists’ CMT Crossroads appearance.

The Video of the Year field will be winnowed down from 14 to five on June 1st, with the top three nominees announced June 8th. Fans choose the winner via social media voting during the broadcast.

The CMT Music Awards air Wednesday, June 9th, at 8 p.m. ET on CMT, MTV, MTV2, Logo, Paramount Network, and TV Land.
