Nominations for the 2022 CMT Awards were announced on Wednesday, and singer Kane Brown leads all artsits with four total nods. The annual fan-voted event will take place Monday, April 11 and air live for the first time on CBS.

Brown’s multiple nominations include his single “One Mississippi,” which is up for Video of the Year as well as Male Video of the Year. Additionally, Brown snagged a CMT Performance of the Year nod for his take on Randy Travis’ “Three Wooden Crosses” at the 2021 CMT Artists of the Year Show.

Other performers with multiple nominations include Kelsea Ballerini, Mickey Guyton, Breland, and Cody Johnson. Ballerini, Johnson, and Guyton will all compete for Video of the Year, while Breland’s “Cross Country” earned him a spot in the Breakthrough Video of the Year category.

The show’s top prize for Video of the Year is a crowded category with 12 total nominees in its first round, ranging from Kacey Musgraves’ “Justified” and Taylor Swift’s “I Bet You Think About Me” with Chris Stapleton to Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood’s duet “If I Didn’t Love You” and Luke Combs’ “Forever After All.”

There is also a new category for CMT Digital-First Performance of the Year this year, recognizing outstanding performances on CMT’s digital properties during the last year. Those nominees include Brittney Spencer, Carly Pearce, Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi, Josh Turner, and Lainey Wilson.

Voting is now open at vote.cmt.com. The 2022 CMT Awards, hosted by Kelsea Ballerini and Anthony Mackie, will air at 8 p.m. ET on CBS and be available for streaming live on Paramount+.
