As sure as the sun rises in the east and taxes are like math bombs, country music shall celebrate its greatest (or at least, most popular) artists approximately 65,000 times a year. On Wednesday night, the acronym of choice was the CMA Awards, where Nashville’s finest — and some of Nashville’s finest — mixed with some of Nashville’s “finest,” and even just plain old garden variety celebs. Because when you’re part of a string of umpteen galas feting the same group of people, it’s best to be welcoming to any and all newcomers. Join us as we relish the most noteworthy outfits of the bunch.
