The Emmy Awards will have something for country fans Monday night (Aug. 25). Both Carrie Underwood and Blake Shelton have shows nominated for Emmys this year.

‘The Sound of Music Live!’ — starring Carrie as Maria von Trapp — has been nominated in four categories, including Outstanding Special Class Program, Outstanding Music Direction, Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special and Outstanding Technical Direction. 

NBC's "The Voice," where Shelton serves as a mentor and judge, is up for a whopping 10 Emmys including a chance to repeat as the winner for the Outstanding Reality-Competition Show.

The show's stiff competition in the reality show category includes "The Amazing Race," "So You Think You Can Dance," "Dancing With the Stars," "Top Chef" and "Project Runway."

The Emmy Awards will be hosted by Seth Meyers and broadcast live on NBC from 8-11 p.m. ET.
