which also appears on the single and video list. He appears on the ballot in the vocal event category as well, for “The Only
Way I Know” with Jason Aldean and Luke

.

Meanwhile, Aldean and Bryan are nominated in the entertainer category, along with Lambert, Blake
Shelton
and Swift. As previously announced, Bryan and Shelton will co-host the show.

Hayes received six nominations,
including new male vocalist and video for “Wanted.” As the artist and
producer of “Wanted,” he was also twice-nominated in both the song category and single category.

The nominees in the
new artist category are drawn from the previously-announced individual winners in the categories of new male vocalist, new
female vocalist and new vocal duo or group categories. Those final nominees are Florida
