It's a mistake to compare the American Country Awards to the CMA Awards, or even the ACM Awards, country music's other Las Vegas-based awards show. The CMT Awards or CMA Country Christmas specials are more fair comparisons. Expectations for Fox's awards show have been too high since the beginning -- it airs in December, after television's sweeps month, against network reruns and Christmas movies. No one is breaking the bank, or even hoping to top 'The Voice.'
The artists who make up this gallery of Worst Dressed at the 2013 American Country Awards either took too big of a risk, or didn't try at all. Actually, one even falls blandly in the middle. For the most part, the men and women of country music looked stylish in classic high-roller outfits, but these three stood out for all the wrong reasons.
Luke Bryan had to try to calm down his cheering fans long enough to allow him to introduce the talented LeAnn Rimes for a Patsy Cline tribute -- one that ended with a standing ovation from both fans and artists.
With 'The South,' the Cadillac Three make many of the other rock-inspired country artists seem as aggressive as a Beanie Baby. Their debut single would land squarely in the rock n' roll genre 40 years ago, but time has blurred those lines. The proper response to answer cries of "That ain't real country" is to turn the volume of this jam up louder ... and louder ... and louder.
