Gabby Barrett Grabs Nine 2021 Billboard Music Awards Nominations

Nominees for the 2021 Billboard Music Awards were announced on Thursday (April 29). Gabby Barrett leads in country music, having earned nine nominations this year.

In fact, Barrett’s 2021 BBMAs nominations — in Top Country Artist, Top Country Female Artist, Top Country Album, Top Country Song and five other all-genre categories — make her the most-nominated woman at the awards show, too. She’s also up for Top New Artist, plus four song-focused awards, all for her collaboration with Charlie Puth on her song “I Hope.”

Carrie Underwood and Dan + Shay are also among the country artists nominated in all-genre or non-country-specific 2021 Billboard Music Awards categories. Morgan Wallen is, too, but don’t expect to see him at the show: Despite earning six nominations due to his chart success, Billboard has opted not to include him in the broadcast after he was caught on video using a racist slur earlier this year.

The full list of country nominees at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards is below. Nominees and winners, per Billboard, “are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including MRC Data,” though there are two fan-voted categories at the awards show this year. The eligibility period for 2021 in March 21, 2020, through April 3, 2021.

The 2021 Billboard Music Awards are set for May 23. They’ll air live from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater on NBC beginning at 8PM ET.
