Jason Aldean leads CMT Awards with 4 nominations


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Jason Aldean is the top nominee at the 2011 CMT Music Awards with four nominations.

Long left out of major country music award consideration, Aldean has been on a tear lately. The singer is up for CMT's top award, video of the year, along with male video of the year.

Six acts trail Aldean by one with three nominations apiece: Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Zac Brown Band, Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and The Band Perry. All are video of the year nominees.

The nominations were announced Wednesday morning on NBC's "Today" show. Fans can now decide the winners in 10 categories on the video channel's website and will choose the video of the year winner during the June 8 awards telecast.
