Jay-Z is the only rapper nominated for the 10th Annual Billboard Touring Awards, which will be handed out next month in New York.

The rap mogul and Justin Timberlake‘s Legends of Summer Tour was nominated in the Top Package category, which goes to the top-grossing tour with three or more artists on the bill.  Jay and Justin will compete against some of country music’s biggest stars including Taylor Swift‘s RED Tour with Ed Sheeran featuring Joel Crouse, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line and Casey James.

Jay was also nominated in the Eventful Fans’ Choice Award category, where he will go up against his wife, Beyonce, who also earned a nod for the Concert Marketing & Promotion Award for her Mrs. Carter World Tour, which is sponsored by Pepsi.

Elsewhere, Bruno Mars is up for the Breakthrough Award recognizing an artist in their first decade of touring as a headliner who cracked the ranks of the top tours for the first time.

This year’s Billboard Touring Awards will be presented November 14 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.
