The 58th Annual BMI Country Music Awards were a combination of classic country and modern showbiz, glitz and restraint. Between Taylor Swift, Martina McBride, Faith Hill and, um, Sandra Lee, we got a picture of Nashville 2010.

Why is Sandra Lee here? Why is she the First Lady of New York state? Why does she have a cooking show? We don't ask these questions.

I kind of dig Joey Martin Feek's objectively dowdy 60's camp girl.

Love for costumes aside, I think we can all agree Joey Martin Feek is just underdressed.

Taylor Swift, per usual, is impeccable: she can do sexy as well as she does sweet.

In order to celebrate the event, Sandra Lee probably had a big meal of Country Music Chili (the secret is in the salad dressing!) Semi-homemade cornbread (add jalapeno rings to a store-bought loaf) and Aunt Sandy's wagon wheel cookies for dessert (Oreos with pretzel spokes) while sitting at a table festooned with hay bales and cowboy hats. (I suppose after enough Tequila Sunrises, nothing tastes bad, huh?) After which she put on her sparkliest dress and biggest earrings and mosied on down to The Country Music Awards. Yee-Haw, everybody!
