Why Yes, We're Handing Out Awards for Best Hats
Lee Brice is usually seen with a baseball hat, but we really like this classier look on him. To you, sir, we tip our hats.
Misa Arriaga is wearing a very nice hat, to be sure, and he looks super-classy, but when you're on the red carpet with Kacey Musgraves – who actually appears to be glowing from within – people probably aren't going to be too focused on your headgear.
MOST OPPOSED TO LABOR DAY
Preston Brust – also of LoCash – is flouting some serious fashion rules with this elegant white number, though we suppose the "no white after Labor Day" rule is probably waived for cowboy hats.
Tracy Lawrence released his first album in 1991. With a nearly 25-year-long career like that, we bet he has hats that are older than Kacey Musgraves kicking around.
Kane Brown's hat is on backwards. And it's not even a cowboy hat! We hope you're sitting down.
BEST SCHOOL SPIRIT
Georgia native Cole Swindell is rarely seen without his Georgia Southern University hat. The alumni association must be thrilled!
MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED
Given that Miss America Betty Cantrell is literally wearing a crown on the red carpet, we have to say that we think she's destined for success.
MOST LIKELY TO COME WITH SOUP
Singer-songwriter Brian Collins' Irish-looking topper just makes us pine for a rough-hewn blanket, a chunky knit sweater and a cup of soup. And coming from us, that's a real compliment.
Granger Smith's hat has a gun on it. And it says "Yee yee." We could have sworn the phrase was "Yeehaw," but hey, we've been wrong before.
MOST PERFECTLY BENT BRIM
Look at the way Eric Paslay's hat perfectly curves around to frame his face. High art is what that is.
BEST PRODUCT PLACEMENT
Chris Lucas of LoCash is using his hat in a very smart way, which is to advertise Tin Haul, a brand of boots. He'll probably get some free boots out of this. That's called working smart, not working hard.
