Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Cam Lead CMT Awards Nominations news

When the CMT Music Awards first premiered in 2002, they did so under the name the CMT Flameworthy Video Music Awards — which could bode well for Cam this year. With three nods, her literally fiery video for “Burning House” is up for the most nominations at the 2016 awards, tied with another newcomer Chris Stapleton, and perennial Video of the Year winner Carrie Underwood.

Stapleton splits his three nominations over the video for “Fire Away” and the live-performance clip of “Nobody to Blame.” Underwood is up for “Smoke Break,” both the official video and her live take on the song during her surprise CMT Instant Jam concert in Atlanta last September.

The most intriguing race, however, is the Breakthrough Video of the Year category. Brothers Osborne’s “Stay a Little Longer,” Cam’s “Burning House,” Stapleton’s “Fire Away,” Maren Morris’s “My Church,” Old Dominion’s Back to the Future homage “Break Up With Him” and Chris Janson’s “Buy Me a Boat” all vie for the trophy. Janson’s nomination is particularly interesting, as his video was the first to be financed and produced by the cable network (at the time, Janson, now on Warner Music Nashville, was still an independent artist).

Set for Wednesday, June 8th, on CMT, the CMT Music Awards — entirely fan-voted — recognize the best in country music videos. Fans can begin voting today on cmt.com.
