Paisley, Sugarland Lead CMT Award Nominations
Voting is underway for the 2008 CMT Music Awards, country music's only fan-voted awards show. Brad Paisley leads the pack with six nominations for his hilarious, star-studded video, 'Online.' 'Seinfeld' alumn Jason Alexander also scored two nods for directing and starring in that video. Sugarland is just behind Paisley with five nominations: four for 'Stay' and one for 'Everyday America.' Big and Rich and LeAnn Rimes each make the list with four nods.
Fans can go to CMT's website to vote for their favorite videos in this first round of voting, which ends February 25. On March 6, CMT will announce the four finalists in each of the 13 categories, after which fans can go back to vote again. The winners will be announced live on CMT, Monday, April 14 at 8pm ET.
