Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift + More Garner Additional 2013 Teen Choice Awards Nominations
Swift’s dubstep inspired ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ and Bryan’s ‘Crash My Party’ earned them nominations for Choice Country Song. It will be a tight competition to see who will go home with the surfboard, as Florida Georgia Line‘s phenomenal ‘Cruise,’ Blake Shelton‘s ‘Boys ‘Round Here’ featuring Pistol Annies & friends and Hunter Hayes‘ ‘I Want Crazy’ are vying for the prize, too.
‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ has also placed Swift among nominees for Choice Single-Female Artist, and alongside her pal Selena Gomez, Anna Kendrick, Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus.
Country music is represented well for the Choice Break-Up Song, as Swift’s blatantly honest ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ hit is nominated, as well as country trio the Band Perry‘s ‘Done’ — their second nomination this year.
For this second round, Swift ties with Bruno Mars for their whopping three nominations, and so far, she has doubled her nominations for the Fox event, with a total of six nods — a lot of surfboards if she takes them all home. Last year, she was nominated for five awards, including the prestigious Choice Female Artist, and ‘pocketed’ every single one.
Bryan isn’t a stranger to being nominated at these teen-voted awards, either — he was up for Choice Male Country Artist last year. You can watch the 2013 Teen Choice Awards on August 11 from 8-10 PM ET.
