Tonight the cream of the country music crop will gather at the 2012 CMT Music Awards, and while there will be plenty of sexy cowboys to ogle, we can't forget about the girl power! Some of country's fiercest ladies will be there either performing or accepting accolades at the award show. Nominated women include Martina McBride and Carrie Underwood, whose pipes are as strong as their powerful lyrics, and Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift, who aren't afraid to show their feisty side and mad guitar skills. These cowgirls are notorious for belting out lyrics on being kickass, fearless women. So check out some of our favorite lines from their songs up for an award tonight!

Just take my hand, together we can do it
I’m gonna love you through it."

And life makes love look hard
The Stakes are high, the water's rough, but this love is ours"
