Sin City was a little bit hotter tonight (December 10) as Darius Rucker showed up for the 2013 American Country Awards at Mandalay Bay.

Gearing up for the big evening ahead, the “Wagon Wheel” star looked to be in great spirits as he worked the press on his way through the red carpet area.

This year, competition is fierce in all of the categories, though with a total of 8 nominations it seems Taylor Swift stands a pretty good chance of taking home some hardware.

Meanwhile, Florida Georgia Line and Blake Shelton each have seven chances to score big before the evening draws to a close.
