While all eyes are on tonight's CMA Awards, there are several more awards shows on deck for the spotlight in the next few months, including the fan-voted People's Choice Awards. And, according to the names that made it through to the second round of People's Choice voting, county music stars are definitely a source to contend with ... appearing not only in country music categories, but also in other music categories, and one surprising nomination in a non-music category, as well.

For Favorite Country Music Artist, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flatts are all nominated. Carrie and Taylor will also go head-to-head in the Favorite Female Artist category, where they are joined by Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Pink.

The Favorite Male Artist category has superstar -- and movie star -- Tim McGraw pitted against Eminem, Enrique Iglesias, Michael Bublé and Usher.

Carrie is also nominated for her guest spot on the Emmy-winning drama, 'How I Met Your Mother,' where she is competing against 'HIMYM' star Neil Patrick Harris and Brittney Spears, who are both nominated for their guest roles on 'Glee.' Demi Lovato also appears in the category for her role on 'Grey's Anatomy,' as well as comedic icon Betty White for her guest spot on 'Community.'

The People's Choice Awards will air live on January 5 on CBS. Cast your votes here.
