Four of country music’s hottest acts lead the nominees for the CMT Music Awards.

Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood each received three nominations when finalists were announced Tuesday morning. Ten other acts received two nominations.

Overall nominations were announced in April. Fans voted to narrow down each category to a handful of finalists. Finalists for video of the year will be announced at the beginning of the June 9 show in Nashville, Tenn., and fans will vote for the winner by text message. There are 10 nominees in that category.

All four top nominees have a video up for video of the year. Fans can vote for their favorite acts at CMT’s website through June 8.

Kid Rock will host the live CMT Music Awards.
