Swift and Underwood will face off in the Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year categories. Lady Antebellum are also nominated for Video of the Year. Swift rounds out her noms with a nod for Collaborative Video of the Year, while Underwood is up for CMT Performance of the Year from the 2009 CMT Music Awards.

Fans can vote on the other categories through June 8. The show will take place at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, which is also the venue for the June 22 Nashville Rising flood-relief benefit.
“When you look at the talent and diversity amassed within these categories, it’s easy to see why this has been CMT’s biggest year ever,” CMT President Brian Philips said in a statement. “Hosted by our Nashville-brother-by-way-of-Detroit Kid Rock, this night promises to be an unforgettable party!”
A number of Nashville regulars are set to perform, including Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban, with more acts to be announced.
