Nominations for the 2022 American Music Awards were announced on Thursday (Oct. 13), and in the country music categories, Cody Johnson leads the field.
Carrie Underwood, Morgan Wallen, Luke Combs and Chris Stapleton are also nominated in multiple AMA categories, but Johnson’s three nominations are tops in the genre. Bad Bunny is the most nominated artist overall, with eight American Music Awards nominations. Beyonce, Drake and Taylor Swift are next, with three each.
Swift’s reimagined version of her Red album is nominated in a country category as well. Red (Taylor’s Version) joins albums from Johnson, Underwood and Combs in the Favorite Country Album category (see the full list below). She’s also nominated in the Artist of the Year category. No all-genre category features a country artist.
