Dan+Shay, Maren Morris, Blake Shelton, Luke Combs Lead American Music Awards Country Nominees

The nominees were announced Monday morning (Oct. 26) for this year’s American Music Awards. “I Should Probably Go To Bed” hitmakers Dan+Shay lead the country nominees with three nods, including one in the all-genre Collaboration of the Year category, for “10,000 Hours” with Justin Bieber. The song is also nominated for Favorite Song-Country, which could mark Dan+Shay’s second win in the category, should their names be called during the ceremony.  Dan+Shay are also up for Favorite Duo or Group-Country, which would mark their second win should they take home the honor this year.

Notably, two pop artists are nominated in the Favorite Song-Country category, with Bieber nominated alongside Gwen Stefani, who is featured on Blake Shelton‘s “Nobody But You.”

Luke Combs is nominated for two AMAs, including Favorite Male Artist-Country, and Favorite Album-Country (What You See Is What You Get).

Maren Morris is also nominated twice, for Favorite Female Artist-Country, and for Favorite Song-Country (for “The Bones”).

Shelton is up for Favorite Album-Country (for Fully Loaded: God’s Country) as well as Favorite Song-Country, for his duet with Stefani, “Nobody But You.”

The Favorite Female Artist-Country will have a first-time winner in the category, no matter who takes home the win. This year’s nominees include Morris, Miranda Lambert, and Gabby Barrett. Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift have been the only two winners in the category for the past 13 years. Underwood has won the category for the past six years (plus a win back in 2007). Taylor Swift took home the honor for six years (2008-2013).

Old Dominion is also nominated in the Favorite Duo or Group Category-Country; a win would mark their first AMA award ever. Meanwhile, a win for fellow category nominees Florida Georgia Line would mark the the fifth time they’ve earned the honor.

Lauren Daigle is up for her fourth possible win in the Favorite Artist-Contemporary Inspirational category. Daigle has earned the title for the past three consecutive years. It would mark the first win for fellow category nominees for King & Country and Kanye West.

This year’s AMAs will air Sunday, Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Voting is open now.
