The final four nominees in each category will be announced May 19th on CMT. The eighth annual show premieres live from Nashville on June 17 at 8 p.m. ET.

The Wide Open Country category that John and Karen are nominated in results from the "My Sweet Love" video's visibility on CMT's "Wide Open Country," a show featuring music from a vast array of alt-country, bluegrass, and Americana artists along with performers from the heart of country music.
