It's been a great year for country music and today's hottest stars in the genre came out to Nashville to attend the CMT Artists of the Year 2013 celebration on Tuesday (December 3).

Looking adorably chic was Hayden Panettiere, who wore a sleeveless black and white top with black pants and peep-toed heels.

Accepting his award on stage, Jason Aldean sported a black T-shirt, brown leather jacket, black jeans, and a cowboy hat.

Happy to strut her stuff on the red carpet, Cassadee Pope smiled brightly in a long-sleeved blue patterned dress with blonde streaks in her hair.

Coordinating nicely, Lady Antebellum celebrated their big year in matching black outfits while Tim McGraw chose a gray blazer, checked dress shirt, and his usual black cowboy hat.

Prior to hitting the stage with Lionel Richie, honoree Luke Bryan arrived in a black button-down shirt, black blazer, and black pants.

Other Artists of the Year include Florida Georgia Line and Hunter Hayes with appearances made by Alabama, Dierks Bentley, Travis Tritt, and Pat Monahan.
