Church's The Outsiders was released in February on the heels of two successful singles – the title track and "Give Me Back My Hometown." The album received critical acclaim and debuted atop both the Billboard 200 chart and the Top Country Albums chart. The Outsiders also launched the popular singles "Cold One" and "Talledega."
Lambert's Platinum, her fifth studio album, hit shelves on June 3 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Platinum's lead single (and now GRAMMY-nominated) "Automatic" scored Lambert a trophy for Female Video of the Year at the CMT Awards earlier this year, while her "Something Bad" duet with Carrie Underwood hit No. 1 on the US Hot Country Songs chart.
Speaking of Underwood, ET had an exclusive look behind-the-scenes as she filmed the gorgeous music video for "Something in the Water." See it here.
Hayes previously paid a visit to ETonline, where he dished on his Tattoo Your Name tour and talked about his Storyline follow-up.
"I'm further musically than I am lyrically," he said. "I'm starting from a different place on this next one." Storyline was released in May after Hunter debuted the lead single, "Invisible," at the 2014 GRAMMYs.
"Cop Car" is the third single off Urban's Fuse and, surprisingly, was one of the singer's lower-charting singles. It peaked at No. 4 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart and at No. 8 on the Country Airplay chart. Since then, he's had more commercial success with the follow-up single "Somewhere in my Car." ET had an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the steamy music video.
Earlier, Dierks Bentley, Church, Brandy Clark, Lambert and Lee Ann Womack were revealed as the nominees for Country Album of the Year on CBS This Morning.
Kenny Chesney's "American Kids," Lambert's "Automatic," Church's "Give Me Back My Hometown," Glen Campbell's "I'm Not Gonna Miss You," and Tim McGraw's "Meanwhile Back at Mama's" also scored nominations for Best Country Song, GRAMMY winner Joy Williams announced.
