When we think of country music stars, one of the first images to pop into our heads is hair that's as big as their voices.

But at last night's 2010 CMT Music Awards in Nashville, Tennessee, some of our favorite celebs stood out on the red carpet in sleek, straight hairstyles.

Golden girl Taylor Swift left behind her famous wavy tendrils and opted for ultra-sleek locks. The 20-year-old singer-actress' side-swept coiff rounded out her smoky eyes and fresh face. Julianne Hough's straight 'do accentuated her buttery-blonde hair color and blue eyes. Kellie Pickler turned down the volume and turned up the sophistication with long layers. And presenter Hayden Panettiere proved she could stand along country's greatest with her slicked-down pixie haircut.
