Taylor's trademark curls are one of the most endearing things about her, but it's fun to change things up every once in a while. Last night at the CMT Awards, she hit the red carpet with a stick-straight style. Straight hair definitely changes her look a little, although honestly, she's just about perfect either way. I love both looks, but which one do you think suits her better?

Blond hair ruled on the red carpet at last night's CMT Music Awards in Nashville. Taylor Swift mixed things up with a slightly edgier look than we're used to from her, straightening out those trademark curls. Carrie Underwood stood out in pink as both country princesses headed in to see what would come of their three nominations apiece. Brand-new mom of two Sheryl Crow displayed her rocking legs, which had an especially nice glow after her recent bikinis Bahamas vacation with her son Wyatt. Faith Hill was glamorous as ever while Hayden Panettiere showed some skin in her lacy cutout dress.
Kid Rock played host for the award show and kept things light with a Kanye West joke to kick things off. Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, and Carrie Underwood were the big winners — check out the whole list here. Keith gave a heartfelt thank you to his wife Nicole Kidman who skipped the red carpet but was supporting him all night long from her seat. Carrie planted a kiss on her fiancé Mike Fisher and later made a speech that included an emphatic "Awesome fans! Awesome, awesome, amazing, awesome, awesome!" Keith also performed with John Mayer, for which the guys spent the day practicing. Mayer's mystery illness didn't slow down his sense of humor as he flashed his abs to compare with Jersey Shore's The Situation, who was of course there with a few of his castmates. Carrie and Brad Paisley were among the evening's other musical acts as the country world gathered together to celebrate their genre and Nashville in the wake of the city's recent tragic flood.

Here's a bit of midweek manjoyment courtesy of John Mayer and Keith Urban, who got together this afternoon for a soundcheck before tonight's CMT Music Awards in Nashville. The guys also teamed up a few months ago to record a Crossroads concert that will air on CMT next week. John looked like he was back to his healthy self after canceling the last leg of his European tour due to a mystery illness. Kid Rock will host this evening's event, and he's in Tennessee after a stay in LA for Saturday's Spike TV Guys Choice Awards. While he, John, and Keith hold things down for the guys, the show will also include a performance from Carrie Underwood — John's former rumored love interest Taylor Swift isn't scheduled to sing.
