Dan + Shay are the most-nominated country act at the 2020 American Music Awards, with three nominations to their name. That includes a nod in the all-genre Collaboration of the Year category with their Justin Bieber duet, “10,000 Hours.”
They’re also in the running in the Favorite Duo or Group — Country category, as well as in Favorite Song — Country, also for “10,000 Hours.”
In the latter category, Dan + Shay will go head-to-head against two other popular country choices, Maren Morris and Blake Shelton. Maren comes into the category courtesy of her cross-genre hit “The Bones,” while Blake clocks in with “Nobody but You,” his duet with his pop superstar girlfriend Gwen Stefani.
Maren and Blake each have two nominations this year: Maren’s also up for Favorite Female Artist — Country alongside Gabby Barrett and Miranda Lambert. Blake’s also got a mention in Favorite Album — Country for his Fully Loaded project. He appears as well in the Favorite Album — Country category alongside Morgan Wallen and Luke Combs, who both also have two nominations apiece. Luke and Morgan scored nods in the Favorite Male Artists — Country category, where they’re up against Kane Brown.
Florida Georgia Line and Old Dominion also received mentions in the Favorite Duo or Group — Country category.
Some of this year’s AMA nominees were announced on ABC’s Good Morning America by Dua Lipa Monday morning. Rapper Roddy Ricch and singer-songwriter The Weeknd are the most-nominated acts overall, with a whopping eight nominations apiece. Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Megan Thee Stallion and many more also came in with multiple nods.
