CMT Music Award nominees announced...and you decide who wins. Plus, Reba and Trisha on tv tomorrow and Tonight's Tweets

For someone who doesn't want a lot of media attention about her wedding, Carrie Underwood sure is talking about it a lot. Not that we mind :) Carrie said recently she won't mix business with her upcoming wedding by singing herself. She tells Fox 411, "That's my job ... I mean I love to sing around the house, but no, no singing."

Lots of different opinions in the country about the health care bill and one country star spoke out in favor of it. Tim McGraw applauds President Obama for getting the health care bill passed. Tim, who grew up without health insurance, told Self magazine, "If you save at all, you are saving in case a medical emergency happens. People that are now covered won't have to worry ... that is now money that they can actually spend and put into the economy or that they can save for their retirement."

Reba McEntire will perform "Consider Me Gone" and "I Want a Cowboy" on tomorrow's Dancing With the Stars results show. The show airs at 8 p.m. on ABC...gotta set my DVR!

Something else to set the DVR for...Trisha Yearwood will be stopping by Good Morning America and The View tomorrow to celebrate the release of her new cookbook, Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood...which not so coincidentally hits stores tomorrow!

If you bought the new Lady A album, April's free bonus song is available now! Download "American Honey" LIVE here: http://bit.ly/bLaX3O

Online voting has opened for the first round of 2010 CMT Music Awards nominees here, and will run through May 3. Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum and Sugarland each received four nominations. Video of the Year nominees are Aldean's "The Truth," Kenny Chesney's "Out Last Night," Toby Keith's "American Ride," Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now," Miranda Lambert's "White Liar," Brad Paisley's "Welcome To The Future," Taylor Swift's "You Belong With Me," Carrie Underwood's "Cowboy Casanova," Keith Urban's "Til Summer Comes Around" and Zac Brown Band's "Toes." The finalists will be announced May 11 except for Video, which will be revealed at the beginning of the CMT MAs. Winners will be revealed live from Nashville June 9 on CMT and CMT.com.

Congratulations to Love And Theft's Eric Gunderson and new wife Emily Hagar, who got married Saturday.

Thoughts and prayers are with Terri Clark, whose mother Linda Clark passed away last night.
