Faith, Urban + Brad Among Country's Triple Threats
Country queen FAITH HILL, BROOKS + DUNN, BRAD PAISLEY, KEITH URBAN, TRACE ADKINS and AMERICAN IDOL winner CARRIE UNDERWOOD are all triple nominees for the upcoming CMT Music Awards. The triple threats were announced yesterday (15MAR06) and now have a nervous month-long wait until the awards take place on 10 April (06). Hill's LIKE WE NEVER LOVED AT ALL video, which co-stars husband TIM MCGRAW, grabs two nominations - for Best Director and Best Collaborative Video. Paisley's WHEN I GET WHERE I'M GOING duet with DOLLY PARTON is also a double contender - for Best Collaborative Video and Inspiring Video, while his ALCOHOL promo will battle for the coveted Video of The Year prize with Brooks + Dunn's BELIEVE, Urban's BETTER LIFE and Adkins' HONKY TONK BADONKADONK. Meanwhile, Idol star Underwood's JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL video earns accolades in the Female Video, Breakthrough Video and Inspiring Video categories. The winners will be announced at the awards show in Nashville, Tennessee next month (APR06).
