The Country Singer Is Nominated for 6 Awards
Miranda Lambert has set herself up with six nominations from the upcoming 2014 CMT Music Awards -- with an impressive set of music over the last year. The announcement for the nominations on the upcoming awards ceremony were released earlier on Monday, May 5th.
The country music star landed more nominations than any other musicians for the event -- two of which are for her independent work from "Automatic" , another two for her collaboration with Keith Urban on “We Were Us," and two more as a member of Pistol Annies.
"Well, I love that those are for collaborative efforts," Urban said. "That's extremely gratifying."
Urban and Taylor Swift tied with four nominations each, while Blake Shelton and Hunter Hayes each nabbed three. Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Eric Church, Kacey Musgraves and Lady Antebellum all secured two nominations apiece.
Other nominees include Brett Eldredge, Cole Swindell, Dan + Shay, David Nail, Dierks Bentley, the Eli Young Band, Jake Owen, Jason Aldean, Little Big Town, Randy Houser, Rascal Flatts, Sheryl Crow, Thompson Square, Tyler Farr, Willie Nelson and the Zac Brown Band. Additionally, nominations also went to Fall Out Boy, Jason Mraz, Lionel Richie, Neil Young, Nelly and OneRepublic for their collaborations with country artists.
