NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean are the leading nominees for the CMT Music Awards with four each. But it’s the pop artists who might steal the big prize at this year’s awards show.

CMT announced Tuesday for the first time that pop artists who have collaborated with country artists are nominated for video of the year.

Justin Timberlake’s “Say Something” featuring Chris Stapleton and the country chart-topping song “Meant To Be,” by Bebe Rexha featuring Florida Georgia Line are both nominated in the category, alongside artists like Blake Shelton, Kelsea Ballerini, Brothers Osborne and Thomas Rhett.

Little Big Town, who are nominated for three awards, will host the show, which airs on June 6 at 8 p.m. Eastern on CMT. Fans can vote online at CMT.com.
