Carrie Underwood has started her campaign to bring home as many CMT Awards as possible, and as the artist with the most nominations, she has a good chance of bringing home more awards than anyone else.
Of course, Carrie would have a better shot at winning the most awards if she didn’t have to compete against herself.
In total, Underwood was nominated for three awards for her solo work: “Something in the Water” earned Carrie a nomination in the Video of the Year category and the Female Video of the Year category, while Underwood earned a second nomination in the Female Video of the Year category for “Little Toy Guns.”
Carrie Underwood’s other two nominations came for collaborative work she did with Miranda Lambert. Together, Underwood and Lambert earned nominations in the Video of the Year and Collaborative Video of the Year categories for the work they did together on “Somethin’ Bad.”
On Wednesday, Underwood reminded fans via Twitter that she has been nominated for five 2015 CMT Awards.
