The nominees for the 2011 CMT Music Awards are out, and it seems that there's no awards show Justin Bieber won't be nominated for.

The Canadian superstar managed to nab a CMT nod for his collaboration with Rascal Flatts on the reworked version of 'That Should Be Me.' He's up against Jason Aldean with Kelly Clarkson for 'Don't You Wanna Stay,' Kid Rock featuring Sheryl Crow for 'Collide,' Aaron Lewis featuring George Jones and Charlie Daniels for 'Country Boy' and Loretta Lynn, Miranda Lambert and Sheryl Crow for 'Coal Miner's Daughter' in the Collaborative Video of the Year category.

Taylor Swift got three nods for her video for 'Mine': She's up for Best Web Video of the Year (for her performance at her Speak Now album-release party), Female Video of the Year and Video of the Year. Carrie Underwood is up for two prizes, facing off against Swift in the Female Video of the Year and Video of the Year categories with her video for 'Undo It.'

Other Female Video of the Year nominees include Sara Evans ('A Little Bit Stronger'), Miranda Lambert ('The House That Built Me') and Reba McEntire ('Turn On the Radio').

A number of other crossover acts such as Sugarland, Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert are up for the night's big award, Video of the Year. Other nominees in the category include Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Zac Brown Band and The Band Perry.
