NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — It’s a wide-open field for this year’s CMT Music Awards with five artists topping the nominations with three each: Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne, Luke Combs, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris and Zac Brown Band.

Nominations for the awards, to be held on June 5 in Nashville, Tennessee, were announced Tuesday and fan voting is now open at vote.cmt.com. Grammy-winning act Little Big Town is nominated for two awards and will host the show, which airs live from Nashville on the country music cable channel CMT.

Carrie Underwood has the most awards in CMT history with 18 and she’s nominated for video of the year and female video of the year. Other artists getting two nominations include Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Kacey Musgraves and Cole Swindell.

Fourteen videos are in the running for video of the year, and the top five nominees in that category will be announced the morning of the show.

The pop-friendly awards show also celebrates non-country acts who collaborate within the genre. Taylor Swift, who has won three CMT video of the year awards, has two nominations for her duet with Sugarland, Babe. Pop singer-songwriter Julia Michaels also earned two nominations for her duet with Keith Urban, Coming Home.

Americana artist Brandi Carlile picked up two nominations, including female video of the year for her song The Joke, even though it has not been played on country radio. In addition, Shawn Mendes, Boyz II Men and Leon Bridges all earned nominations for CMT performance of the year after collaborations with country artists on the cable channel’s shows.
