We're less than four hours (as of this writing) away from tonight's CMT Music Awards, honoring the best of the past year in music videos. Last fall we tried to pick the CMA Awards (which Ben won), and earlier this year we tried to pick the ACM Awards (which I won), so let's put our predicting skills to the test to pick the best videos in country music. The awards air tonight at 7pm central on CMT. Each nominee is clickable through to the video (only once per nominated video throughout the article)
