Meanwhile, Dierks Bentley and OneRepublic (“Counting Stars”), Jake Owen (“Days Of Gold”), Lady Antebellum and Stevie Nicks (“Rhiannon”), Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie (“Oh No/All Night Long”), The Band Perry and Fall Out Boy (“My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark”) and Willie Nelson and Neil Young (“Long May You Run”) – all from CMT TV specials – are up for the CMT Performance of the Year prize.
