The 2018 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) are just over a month away and the full list of nominations has finally been revealed. The show will air live from Las Vegas on Sunday, May 20 at 8/7c on NBC.

Chris Stapleton is the lucky country artist to be nominated in an all-genre category with a nod in the Top Billboard 200 Artist alongside Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Ed Sheeran, and Taylor Swift.

Top Country Artist nominees include Kane Brown, Luke Combs, Sam Hunt, Thomas Rhett, and Chris Stapleton. Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert, and Maren Morris are the three women nominated for Top Country Female Artist. They've even hinted that they're all going to wear matching dresses: we can't wait.

“What Ifs," “Small Town Boy," “Body Like a Backroad," “Meant to Be," and “In Case You Didn't Know" are all nominated for Top Country Song. Lauren Alaina could not believe the nomination and shared a photo of her and Kane Brown to celebrate!
