The awards – aside from the CRMA Fans' Choice Award, the FACTOR Breakthrough Award and Chart Topper Award – are voted on by radio program directors, music directors and on-air personalities. The nominees are artists who have hit the charts and also achieved "top airplay" in different formats based on radio "spins."
Also with five nominations is Alyssa Reid for her song 'Alone Again.'
