What's old is new again. And what's new is, well, still new. But both kinds of acts are making up this year's list of contenders for the video-honoring 2010 CMT Awards.

Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift , Lady Antebellum and Jason Aldean each scored a leading three nominations for country's only fan-voted awards show, while twangy regulars Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Sugarland, Keith Urban and Zac Brown Band represent for country's old guard, netting two nods apiece.

Rounding out this year's nominees are Brooks & Dunn, Laura Bell Bundy, Billy Currington, Rascal Flatts, Gloriana, Dave Matthews, Kellie Pickler, Blake Shelton, Bryan Adams and Trace Adkins.

Per usual, fans will determine the winners in each of the categories, and can vote online at vote.CMT.com all the way through the night of the awards, on June 8.

Honorary Nashville resident Kid Rock hosts this year's gala, while nominees Lady Antebellum, Underwood, Lambert, Keith and Urban each pull double duty next month, adding performing duties to their big night.
