This year none of the country artists received nominations in the all-genre categories. The country names were only under the country categories. Lionel Richie also appears in the category for Favorite Album- Country for his ‘Tuskegee’ album. The album is a collection of his hit songs performed as duets by himself and country artists.
The awards will be handed out on the live broadcast of the 40th Anniversary American Music Awards show November 18th on the ABC TV network.
