Wednesday night’s CMT Music Awards brought country music’s best to the Nashville red carpet, where stars like Miranda Lambert shined—literally! “I feel like a big disco ball,” she told PEOPLE of her sparkly dress. Julianne Hough, for her part, let her fans do the styling for her. “It’s a bright burst of color,” she said of her sparkly yellow minidress. And even those who weren’t rooted in country music came out to join the festivities, including Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who got herself in the mood by wearing a cowboy hat.
