Who Had the Biggest Hair at the CMT Music Awards?

To the uninitiated, country music people feel pretty easy to pin down. They like their beer, their boots, their trucks, and their unwavering national pride. But judging by the red carpet at last night's CMT Awards, we can add something else to the list: They love big hair. The eventing was a parade of teased, sprayed, and lifted 'dos that would make Marge Simpson jealous. So naturally, we decided to rank 'em.
