Some of country music’s biggest stars and this year’s breakthrough artists have snagged 2017 CMT Music Awards nominations.

Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Luke Bryan are among the usual suspects who are listed in multiple categories. But rising artists Midland, Luke Combs and Brett Young also landed in the Breakthrough Video of the Year and Group Video of the Year categories.

All winners will be chosen by votes casted online by fans through the CMT website. This year, the awards will be moved from their home at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena to the Music City Center directly across the street. The change in venue is due to the possibility that the Nashville Predators hockey team will be competing in their playoff games at the arena during that time.

You can catch the 2017 CMT Music Awards live from downtown Nashville on June 7 via CMT.
