Morgan Wallen is the most-nominated act at the inaugural People's Choice Country Awards, a new fan-voted awards show that is an extension of the annual People's Choice Awards and will broadcast from Nashville on NBC and Peacock in September.

According to Billboard, Wallen leads with 11 nominations, including a nod for the highest award of the night, the People's Artist of 2023. His One Thing at a Time album is also nominated for the Album of 2023, and songs including "Thinkin' Bout Me," "Last Night," "Thought You Should Know" and "You Proof" are all nominated in various categories, too.

Other top nominees include Luke Combs and Hardy, who snagged nine nominations apiece, and Jelly Roll, who is up for eight awards. Lainey Wilson is the most-nominated woman with seven nods, and she's also among the nominees for the People's Artist of 2023.

The new event is now one of two fan-voted country music awards shows; the other is the CMT Music Awards, which most recently took place in early April 2023. It will feature several categories similar to those voted on in other awards shows, including the Album of 2023 and the Song of 2023, as well as new categories including the Crossover Song of 2023, a nod to the show's all-genre roots.

Voting for the People's Choice Country Awards opens on Wednesday (Aug. 16), and will continue through Friday, Aug. 25, at 11:59 PM ET. Votes will count twice during the "Turbo Tuesday" voting window, taking place on Aug. 22, between 12 AM ET and 11:59 PM ET, according to the full rules list.

Little Big Town is set to host the first-ever People's Choice Country Awards. The ceremony will take place at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry on Thursday, Sept. 28, at 8PM ET. The event will stream simultaneously on NBC and Peacock.
