De nominaties voor de 2019 editie van de Country Music Television (CMT) Awards zijn bekend. En het wordt een spannende aangelegenheid, want vier acts hebben maar liefst drie nominaties op zak.

Deze vier zijn Zac Brown Band, Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne en Miranda Lambert.

Maar zij zijn zeker niet de enige met meer dan één nominatie, ook Luke Combs, Carrie Underwood, Brandi Carlile, Dan + Shay, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Kane Brown, Kacey Musgraves, Julia Michaels, Cole Swindell, Little Big Town, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Sugarland en Taylor Swift maken meerdere keren kans op de gewilde award.

Bridgestone Arena, Nashville

De awards worden op woensdag 5 juni uitgereikt in de Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. De vier leden van Little Big Town presenteren dit jaar de show.
