On Wednesday night, Nashville went Hollywood as country musicians gathered at the Bridgestone Arena for the 2012 CMT Music awards.Carrie Underwood proved to be the night’s big winner, taking home the awards for Video of the Year for “Good Girl” and Collaborative Video of the Year with Brad Paisley for “Remind Me.”
While the usual country crooners were all in attendance, a few more random faces—like Denise Richards and Hayden Panettiere—came out for the show that was hosted by the odd pairing of actress Kristen Bell and musician Toby Keith.
But despite the awards honouring country music, there were few cowboy boots and hats to be seen.
Instead, most stars opted for glam, short, and sparkly gowns for the event. And of course, big hair.
Ashley Monroe, Angaleena Presley and Miranda Lambert of Pistol Annies walked the purple carpet together.
Denise Richards glammed it up in an Alice + Olivia dress to introduce a performance by the Band Perry.
