Los Angeles — The 2024 CMT Music Awards' top country music video nominations are Jelly Roll, Kelsea Ballerini, Lainey Wilson, Megan Moroney, and Cody Johnson. CMT unveiled the fan-voted awards show nominees on Wednesday, with five acts deadlocked with three nominations.

Ballerini will host the concert live from Austin, Texas' Moody Center on Sunday, April 7 at 8 p.m. EDT/PDT. All but Moroney are competing for video of the year, which has 16 nominees, not including featured artists.

Ashley McBryde, Brandy Clark featuring Brandi Carlile (for “Dear Insecurity,” which won Clark her first Grammy last month), Mickey Guyton featuring Kane Brown, Brothers Osbourne, Darius Rucker, HARDY, Jordan Davis, Kacey Musgraves, Parmalee, Tyler Childers, Zach Bryan, and Jason Aldean were also nominated.

First category nomination for Jelly Roll. Last year, he won three CMT Music Awards more than any other performer. This year, CMT has 14 first-time candidates, including some non-country acts, reflecting its focus on genre-blending collaborations.

Amber Riley, Ashley Cooke, Anne Wilson, Ella Langley, The Castellows, Tigirlily Gold, Bret Michaels, Chayce Beckham, Hozier, Koe Wetzel, Stephen Wilson Jr., Tyler Childers, Warren Zeiders, and Zach Bryan are newcomers  Ashley McBryde, Gabby Barrett, Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini, Lainey Wilson, Megan Moroney, and Reba McEntire compete for female video of the year.

Anne Wilson, Ashley Cooke, Brittney Spencer, and Tigirlily Gold star in the year's breakthrough female video. Major genre star Morgan Wallen received only one nomination: male video of the year for “Last Night (One Record at a Time Sessions).”

 He faces Bailey Zimmerman's “Religiously,” Cody Johnson's “The Painter,” HARDY's “Truck Bed,” Jelly Roll's “Need A Favor,” Jordan Davis' “Next Thing You Know,” and Luke Combs' “Fast Car (Official Live Video).”

Wallen's 2023 album, "One Thing at a Time," was the most popular album of any genre last year, spending 19 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It became the longest-running No. 1 country album ever, surpassing Garth Brooks' 1991 “Ropin' the Wind”. Chayce Beckham, Tyler Childers, Warren Zeiders, and Zach Bryan compete for breakthrough male video of the year. The CBS show will stream live to Paramount+ subscribers who also have Showtime. It will stream on Paramount+ the next day otherwise.
