Sam Hunt, Blake Shelton and More Nominated for 2017 Teen Choice Awards
The Teen Choice Awards are back again for another year of fan-voted awards, and some of the hottest country stars could be landing a surfboard or two later this summer.
The first round of nominations for the awards show were recently announced, with categories ranging throughout all forms of entertainment including movies, television, music and personalities. Although most of the country artists up for the teen taking fall under the music section, Blake Shelton did ring in a nod for Choice TV Personality for his coach position on NBC’s The Voice.
Shelton, along with Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line, Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bryan and Sam Hunt all received nominations in the Choice Country Artist category for the ceremony. Hunt also snagged a spot in the Choice Song: Male Artist grouping for “Body Like a Back Road” and will take on competition such as Harry Styles’ “Sign of the Times,” Niall Horan’s “Slow Hands” and other popular artists.
Even Florida Georgia Line got lucky going up for Choice Collaboration with the Backstreet Boys on “God, Your Mama, and Me.” They’ll be vying for the trophy against ZAYN and Taylor Swift’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” Zedd and Alessia Cara’s “Stay” and other Top 40 picks.
The 2017 Teen Choice Awards will air live on Sunday, August 13, on FOX.
