Heavy rain showers didn't stop country music fans who'd come from all over to see Willie Nelson on Thursday night. Thousands packed Hunter Mountain in New York for the inaugural Taste of Country Music Festival. Ponchos, umbrellas, cold beverages and great country music kept fans in good spirits while the LoCash Cowboys, Parmalee and Nelson took the stage.
The big 2013 ACM Awards winners in Las Vegas were Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan. Lambert took home three trophies, including Female Vocalist of the Year and Single and Song of the Year for 'Over You.' The singer couldn't help but become emotional as she accepted her fifth straight Female Vocalist trophy.
Country music's hottest stars walked the red carpet at the 2013 Grammy Awards, and while most shined, a few failed to impress on music's biggest night. Pictures of the worst dressed country stars from the 2013 Grammys don't quite compare to the worst dressed from the pop world -- did you see the moon man? -- but these three outfits were still less than flattering.
The biggest night in music is also one of the biggest nights in fashion, and the 2013 Grammy Awards did not disappoint. The best dressed artists from the red carpet took chances, but didn't go too far with a good idea. Country music's best dressed stayed on the right side of the line between exciting and eyesore.
Almost a quarter of a million votes were cast during Round 2 of the 2013 Taste of Country Bowl. All four matchups came down to the final day, with one being decided by a close margin, and another producing two winners. The Semi-Finals promise to be just as contested, with just six days for each team to prove that they're best in country music.
It's standard practice for new artists trying to hone in on their sound to match up with many of Nashville's A-list songwriters. But when it came time for Brett Beavers and Tim Nichols to collaborate with Dustin Lynch on his 'She Cranks My Tractor' lyrics, magic happened.
While there were a few fashion duds, there were more than enough fashion studs and beauty queens to make a seat along the 2012 American Country Awards red carpet quite a find. The stars on this Best Dressed list didn't drape themselves in formal wear like they do at other award shows. Instead, the crowd at this Las Vegas ceremony combined West Coast style with country-chic traditions. And five stars really got it right.
While a few stars dolled up for the 2012 American Country Awards on Monday night (Dec. 10), plenty of others went casual... too casual. The men on this list of the Worst Dressed at the 2012 ACAs all have denim in common, while the women who got our heads shaking chose daring dresses that looked stolen from the set of the next 'Spider Man' movie.
Miranda Lambert presented the first of the 2012 American Country Awards winners with guitar on Monday (Dec. 10) night, but later came back to accept three of her own at the star-studded event. However, it was Luke Bryan's night to shine, as the 'I Don't Want This Night to End' singer won nine total ACAs, including two for his radio successes.
The best dressed stars at the 2012 CMA Awards took chances, but didn't stray too far from the colorful gowns and classic suits one expects on country music's biggest night. We liked that. Only one man makes the list of clean outfits -- a testament to the many beautiful females that had flashes popping. Scroll down to see the best of the best dressed from the 2012 CMAs.
Dozens of country stars walked the red carpet at the 2012 CMA Awards, but not everyone shined. The worst dressed at the annual awards show included a couple of Amish or pilgrim tributes -- Thanksgiving is coming up, after all -- and a jacket catastrophe. Scroll down to see the worst of the worst dressed at the 2012 CMA Awards.
