CMT has released their star-studded list of finalists for their Video of the Year award, set to be announced at the 2020 CMT Music Awards, October 21. It’s Country music’s only entirely fan-voted. This year’s slate of artists brings a veritable who’s who of Country music flare.
Carrie Underwood stands firm as the most awarded artist in CMT Music Awards history with 20 wins, including last year’s top prize for her “Cry Pretty” video. But competition is stiffer than a $2 whisky sour. Artists like Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Combs, Miranda Lambert, and Tanya Tucker are looking to un-seed the queen of Country.
Check out videos for the six finalists below and make sure to vote for Video of the Year at vote.cmt.com. Don’t miss the 2020 CMT Music Awards hosted by Kane Brown and Sarah Hyland Wednesday, October 21 at 8:00PM ET.
Carrie Underwood - Drinking Alone
Can someone please crank up the AC? Carrie's seductive lounge inspired video has us sweating through our boots! Side note: Where did she get that bedazzled black top?
Keith Urban - Polaroid
Keith Urban takes a page from 'Saved by the Bell' and basks in Polaroid moments form a backyard BBQ party. Let the nostalgia wash over you.
Kelsea Ballerini - homecoming queen?
What begins as a look behind the curtains of Kelsea's show-stopping persona, shifts to her bottled insecurities and vulnerable nature. True and raw to its core.
Luke Combs - Beer Never Broke My Heart
Over/under three hours you could hang downing beers with Luke Combs? We're taking the under in this video filled with a rowdy mess of sweet regret.
Miranda Lambert - Bluebird
Where the heck is this lounge featuring Miranda Lambert festooned in pheasant feathers, rotating in a giant cage while spectators gawk away, wearing clothing from the Gilded Age?
Tanya Tucker - Bring My Flowers Now
Written by Tucker, Brandi Carlile and Tim and Phil Hanseroth, this video sees Tanya bid a premature adieu to her career and life. The black and white filter provides a haunting beauty that can't be ignored.
