The 2014 People’s Choice Awards pre-nominees have been revealed! In addition to two country categories — Fave Country Icon and Fave Country Artist– several fan-favorite country acts have been suggested to receive nominations across other major multi-genre categories.

Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood are both up for voting in the Favorite Female Artist category, while Blake Shelton could be nominated for Favorite Male Artist.

In the Breakout Artist category, both Florida Georgia Line and Kacey Musgraves earned looks, since both are slowly, but surely grabbing mainstream attention outside of the genre. In the Favorite Band category, the Band Perry, Florida Georgia Line, Mumford and Sons and Lady Antebellum could get nods, while Favorite Album finds Shelton’s ‘Based on a True Story…’ and Luke Bryan‘s ‘Crash My Party’ on the list.

Swift’s fans, the Swifties, were also recognized in the Favorite Music Fan Following category.

Clearly, the county genre is healthily represented in all categories on these longer lists, which will be shortened after voting. Fans can vote often from now through Oct. 31 to ensure that their favorites receive actual nominations. Vote here to nominate your favorites.
