Looks like CMT loves American Idol! Four past contestants received nominations for the CMT Music Awards, including Carrie Underwood (leading all nominees with 5 nods total), Kellie Pickler, Scotty McCreery, and Lauren Alaina. Even judge Steven Tyler got a nomination for “CMT Performance of the Year” for his duet with Carrie on CMT Crossroads.

Both Scotty and Lauren are up for “Breakthrough Video of Year,” while Kelly will compete with Carrie and four others for “Female Video of the Year.” The American Idol Season 4 winner’s other noms include “Collaborative Video of the Year” and two for “Video of The Year.”

We hate to pick favorites, but the odds seem stacked in favor of Carrie getting at least one award, if not an armload!
