Tulsa’s Paul Klein Among CMT Music Awards Nominees | Music
Tulsa’s Paul Klein is the frontman of pop/rock trio LANY, but he’s also been nominated for the CMT Music Awards for the first time, thanks to a collaboration with Kelsea Ballerini.
Klein and Ballerini were nominated in the CMT Performance of the Year category for their team on “I Quit Drinking” at last year’s awards show. To be eligible for CMT Performance of the Year, the performance must have taken place in a television show, series, or special on CMT.
The 2022 CMT Music Awards, the only entirely fan-voted awards show in country music, will be hosted on April 11 by Ballerini and actor Anthony Mackie. Each winner is selected by fans, voting is now open at vote.cmt.com.
Kane Brown leads the 2022 voting pool with four nominations. Artists with three nominations include Ballerini, Mickey Guyton and two new nominees, BRELAND and Cody Johnson.
Oklahoma country music superstar Carrie Underwood, whose 23 wins are the most in CMT Music Awards history, earned nominations for Video of the Year and Collaborative Video of the Year for “If I Didn’t Love You” with Jason Aldean.
