It’s a four-way tie for most nominations at the 2019 CMT Music Awards, as Miranda Lambert, Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris and Zac Brown Band each garnered three nods. The nominations were announced by “Closer to You” singer Carly Pearce this morning on NBC’s Today.

Morris’ uplifting 2019 single “Girl” earned the singer-songwriter nominations for Video of the Year as well as Female Video of the Year. Additionally, her friendship with Brandi Carlile earned a third nomination for their performance of Aretha Franklin’s “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” from the CMT Artists of the Year event in 2018. Lambert’s “Keeper of the Flame” picked up a solo nomination for Female Video of the Year, but her Jason Aldean collaboration “Drowns the Whiskey” picked up another two. Brothers Osborne had similar results, getting two of their three nods by virtue of the Dierks Bentley collaboration “Burning Man” and one for Duo Video of the Year for “I Don’t Remember Me (Before You).” The final five nominees for the Video of the Year category will be announced the morning of the show, with voting continuing taking place through the telecast.

Numerous others, including Luke Combs, Kacey Musgraves, Eric Church and Carrie Underwood picked up more than one nominations. First-time nominees this year include Grammy winner Carlile, soul singer Leon Bridges (for his CMT Crossroads appearance with Combs) and Ashley McBryde (for Breakthrough Video of the Year).

Little Big Town, who picked up a single nomination for 2018’s “Summer Fever,” will host the 2019 CMT Music Awards. The show airs live at 8 p.m. ET Wednesday, June 5th on CMT.
