The American Music Awards are tonight (Sunday, Nov. 23) beginning at 7 p.m. on ABC, which locally is KAMC 28. The big news: Three of our fellow Texans are nominated. 

Houston native Beyoncé is nominated in the Artist of the Year category, Favorite Female Artist - Soul/R&B and Favorite Album - Soul/R&B for her self-titled album.

Miranda Lambert, from Longview, Texas, is nominated for Favorite Female Artist in the Country Music category, along with Kacey Musgraves, from Mineola, Texas.

Good luck to all of the artists nominated, but especially our Texas girls!
