Play On! The 2015 CMT Awards nominees were announced on Wednesday, May 13, with Carrie Underwood leading the pack of talent with a total of five nominations including two nods for Video of the Year.

Along with those two honors, the new mom, 32, received two nominations for Female Video of the Year and one for Collaborative Video of the Year for her "Somethin' Bad" duet with Miranda Lambert. Blake Shelton's wife, who was in the top spot last year with nods, received three total nominations this year.

Trailing Underwood very closely were country megastars Lady Antebellum and Kenny Chesney, who each received four nods. An interesting twist to the mix of usual country suspects was the announcement of new nominees, including pop princess Katy Perry, John Legend, Bob Seger, and rapper Aloe Blacc.
