Kenny Chesney and McGraw top the nominations list with five each, followed by BIG + RICH, Toby Keith and Gretchen Wilson with four apiece. The most-nominated video is Wilson's REDNECK WOMAN, which landed four nods.
The preliminary nominees - which include eight in each category - are determined by a panel of American journalists and CMT staffers. The list will be pared down to four finalists per category by viewers who cast votes on website CMT.COM. Online voters also will choose the winners.
The final list will be announced on 16 March (05), and winners will be honoured at a two-hour live show in Nashville, Tennessee, on 11 April (05).22/02/2005 03:36
