Florida Georgia Line, Maren Morris Nominated for Teen Choice Awards

The nominations for this year's Teen Choice Awards have been announced, and a few country artists scored nods among the rest of their musical peers.

Florida Georgia Line and Maren Morris earned two nominations, both for Choice Collaboration; FGL for their duet with Bebe Rexha, "Meant to Be," and Morris for "The Middle" with Zedd and Grey.

Both songs represent a crossover to pop music for the two acts, with "Meant to Be" becoming one of the biggest songs of Florida Georgia Line's career, spending a whopping 28 weeks at the top of Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart and becoming the second biggest song to ever top the chart, passing the group's own "Cruise," which is sitting in third place with 24 weeks atop the chart.

"The Middle" is also making an impact on pop radio, currently at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Florida Georgia Line was also nominated for Choice Music Group and Morris was nominated for Choice Country Artist.

Fellow Choice Country Artist nominees include Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Kane Brown, Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett.

Chris Stapleton also scored a nod for his turn on Justin Timberlake's "Say Something," which is nominated for Choice Song: Male Artist.

In addition, The Voice received a nomination for Choice Reality TV Show, along with Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Lip Sync Battle, Masterchef Junior, The Four: Battle for Stardom and Total Divas.
