NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The party just keeps rolling for country music star Jason Aldean.

Long left out of major award consideration, Aldean's recent tear continued Wednesday morning when he received a leading four 2011 CMT Music Awards nominations.

The singer's video for "My Kinda Party" earned nods for CMT's top award, video of the year, and male video of the year.

Six acts trail Aldean by one with three nominations apiece: Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Zac Brown Band, Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and The Band Perry. All are nominees for video of the year. Seven others received two nominations apiece.

The nominations for the awards, which are in their 10th year, were announced Wednesday morning on NBC's "Today" show. Fans can now decide the winners in 10 categories on the video channel's website and will choose the video of the year winner during the June 8 awards telecast.

Joining Aldean's "My Kinda Party" in the category are Kenny Chesney's "The Boys of Fall," Lady Antebellum's "Hello World," Miranda Lambert's "The House That Built Me," Rascal Flatts' "Why Wait," Sugarland's "Stuck Like Glue," Taylor Swift's "Mine," The Band Perry's "If I Die Young," Carrie Underwood's "Undo It" and Zac Brown Band's "Colder Weather."

Fans will narrow the video of the year field down to final nominees through June 7, then will choose a winner during the show.
