2009 CMT Music Awards

After eight glorious years, the CMT Music Awards still stand unchallenged as country music’s only fan-voted awards show. The final four nominees were revealed on May 19 — with the exception of the coveted “video of the year” category, to be announced during June 16’s live broadcast. Videos debuting on CMT between Jan. 18, 2008 and Feb. 23, 2009, are eligible for the 2009 CMT Music Awards. Finalists were determined by a blue-ribbon panel that included noted country music journalists, as well as music industry and CMT executives.

The first round of voting ran from April 13 through May 11, only on CMT.com, where fans selected from the top eight nominees in each of the 10 categories. The second round of voting will end on Sunday, June 14 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

The 2009 CMT Music Awards show broadcasts live from Nashville, TN!

Now, the nominees for the 2009 CMT Music Awards:
