Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson Nominated For CMT Music Awards

Georgia crooner Jason Aldean leads this year’s just-announced CMT Music Awards with a total of four, including Video Of The Year and Collaborative Video Of The Year — the latter nod being for “Don’t You Wanna Stay,” Aldean’s duet with Kelly Clarkson. Another pairing that lands in the Collaborative category: Justin Bieber and Rascal Flatts, for “That Should Be Me.” Perhaps less surprising than the Bieb getting his country award recognition on is Taylor Swift’s “Mine” garnering three nominations. Head below to peek at the full list of who’s up for what.
