It is awards season, everyone, and we seem to plowing through them. Well, I guess that's a BIT of an exaggeration. But we did just wrap up the Academy of Country Music Awards and the Emmys just within the last seven days. Full steam ahead.

We've already seen the 2020 CMA Awards nominees and now it's time for the CMT Awards nominations.

The CMT Awards will air October 21st at 7PM Central on CMT and it looks like a really mixed bag of nominees--veterans sharing space with TEN first-time nominees.

Keep in mind, these are preliminary nominations. It's up to us to get the Video of the Year category whittled down to the final five from the current crop of 14. Those finalists will be announced on October 12th.
