Country Music Awards 2008: Big Hair, Sequins, & Nicole Kidman

I might be from the South, but I know jack about country music. Which is why I think I was doubly amused by the Country Music Awards, which took place in Nashville last night: People wore cowboy hats! In earnest! But the happenings were made all the more interesting because 1) Nicole Kidman was there, and 2) a sampling of random celebs, including Maureen McCormick, Paula Abdul, Miley Cyrus, Jewel, and Crystal Gale. (Faith Hill was on hand as well, and looked terrifying.) The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of the Country Music Awards, after the jump.

The Good:
