Carrie Underwood leads the way with five nominations for the 2012 CMT Music Awards. Close behind is Miranda Lambert with four nods — two of which are recognition for her work in the Pistol Annies trio. The nominees were announced live this morning (April 23) on NBC’s “Today” show by host Hoda Kotb and guest co-host Willie Giest, with the help of Little Big Town, who earned a nod in the CMT Performance of the Year category. The foursome will also perform during the ceremony, which airs June 6 on CMT.

Carrie is nominated twice for the night’s top honor, Video of the Year, once for “Good Girl” and another for her collaboration with Brad Paisley, “Remind Me.” Also up for Video of the Year are Jason Aldean‘s “Dirt Road Anthem,” Kenny Chesney‘s “You and Tequila,” which features Grace Potter, Toby Keith‘s “Red Solo Cup,” Lady Antebellum‘s “We Owned the Night,” Miranda Lambert’s “Over You,” Rascal Flatts‘ “Easy” with Natasha Bedingfield, Blake Shelton‘s “God Gave Me You,” and Taylor Swift‘s “Safe & Sound” with the Civil Wars.

All categories are fan-voted. You can cast your votes at CMT.com until June 4. The final five nominees for the Video of the Year category will be announced at the beginning of the telecast.
