Taylor Swift and Brad Paisley Win Big at CMTs

From T-Pain to the B-52's, everyone went a little bit country at last night's CMT Music Awards in Nashville.

The rapper kicked off the show alongside Taylor Swift, winner of Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year for "Love Story." Their hilarious duet (watch video above) was topped only by Sugarland, who won for Duo of the Year, and the B-52s, who got the audience up on their feet for "Love Shack."

Also feeling the love? Brad Paisley, who, with three awards, took away the most honors – CMT Performance of the Year, Male Video of the Year and Collaboration of the Year for "Start A Band," his duet with Keith Urban. Urban joined Paisley on stage to urge kids everywhere to learn guitar because, as Paisley joked, "Rock Band never got anyone a date," referring to the popular video game.

Rascal Flatts and Zac Brown Band also walked away with one award each, and Kid Rock, accompanied by Sheryl Crow, accepted the award for Wide Open Country Video for "All Summer Long," asking the audience, "What's more creative than a stripper pole on a pontoon boat?"

The show ended with Swift joining her CMT Crossroads companions Def Leppard for their rock anthem "Pour Some Sugar On Me."
